JIHAD DARWICHE / HENRY TORGUE

Stories of Egyptian women’s revolution

Women of all generations took part in the Egyptian revolution. But for them, there was yet another major hurdle to be faced : being a woman in a society where it had been decided that their place would not be on Tahrir square.
Jihad Darwiche draws the portraits of ordinary women engulfed in the revolution in february 2011. A revue of the life in Cairo, a hymn to hope and freedom. Henry Torgue’s piano, lyrical and tender, creates a listening space suitable to collect these women’s confidences.
