Director: Safaa Fathy | Producer: Delphine Morel
Focus Years: 2012 | Country: France
My brother Mohammad Fathy lived all his life next to the Nile. He was just as sick as the highly polluted river. He suffered from chronic kidney failure, which killed him. The film tells his story through his life, and after. It deals with the relationship to the body, tradition, religion, family, healing and survival within the context of revolutionary Egypt, whose revolution is precisely about the respect of human dignity and the human body.
