Storyline

Garden City, a small but pivotal neighborhood. Since the turn of the 19th century, it has been the seat of the world's political powers in the Egyptian capital. The film takes us on a journey through abandoned villas, opulent salons, foreign embassies, threatened businesses and rooftop living rooms. Houses turn into witnesses as they make flesh of history's turmoil. Residents and dwellings become a voice telling a story of hope, rupture and endurance. Far from political correctness, all stereotypes dropped, a glimpse of truth comes into view. An allegory of contemporary Egypt, the film challenges us to reflect as well on the security obsessions of our world today. Written by Studio Masr
