‘Ein Shams’ Screening at Italian Cultural Centre
Once the capital of Egypt
during the Pharaonic era and a sacred location marked by the visit of
Jesus and the Virgin Mary, Ein Shams has become one of Cairo’s poorest
and most neglected neighbourhoods. Through the eyes of Shams, an
11-year-old girl inhabitant of this neighbourhood, this film captures the
sadness and magic that envelops everyday life in Egypt. Ein Shams is screened in Arabic with English subtitles.
