‘The Secret of the Grain’ Screening at Cairo Opera House

‘The Secret of the Grain’ Screening at Cairo Opera House

Mr. Slimani, a tired 60-year-old, drags himself
toward a shipyard job that has become more and more difficult to cope
with as the years go by. He is a divorced father who forces himself to
stay close to his family despite the schisms and tensions that are
easily sparked off and that financial difficulties make even more
intense. He is going through a delicate period in his life and,
recently, everything seems to make him feel useless: a failure. He wants
to escape from it all and set up his own restaurant. However, it
appears to be an unreachable dream given his meager, irregular salary
that is not anywhere near enough to supply what he needs to realize his
ambition. But he can still dream and talk about it with his family in
particular. A family that gradually gives its support to this project,
which comes to symbolize the means to a better life. Thanks to its
ingeniousness and hard work, this dream soon becomes a reality…or
almost. The film is subtitled in English and attendance is free.
