El-Banate Dol

Ces Filles-là
These Girls

(Egypt, 2006, 66 minutes)

A documentary on the teenage girls who run away from home and survive as well as they can on Cairo streets by banding together. Excellent documentary that focuses on the girls' energy and drive, so that it becomes an uplifting experience that neatly avoids miserabilism.

A Studio Masr presentation/production. Directed, written and researched by Tahani Rached; produced by Karim Gamal El Dine; music by Tamer Karawan; camera (colour, digital video), Nancy Abdel-Fattah; film editor, Mona Rabie.
