„The mother of the boy backed against a wall and the mother of the girl backed on a thread“
The Thread And The Wall
The Thread And The Wall, is an attempt to understand the status of women in contemporary Egyptian society by shedding a light on the issues and problems that women face on a dailybasis.
Also, the film is a documentation of the „Women On Walls“ project, and because art is the reflection of society, the project sought to empower women by giving them a platform to express and display the associating conflicts through Graffiti. The film closely followed this initiative with its aspirations, its complications and its prevalent outcome.
In addition, the film clearly shows the dichotomous overlap between the artistic process itself and the personal lives of the participants within it, along with others, in an attempt to arrive at a wider fully-formulated perception on the complex and often intricate role of women in society.“
