Cairo 678

Three Cairene women from very different backgrounds pull together in uneasy solidarity to combat the sexual harassment that has impacted each of their lives—and has become a general plague in their city. Based on real-life incidents that led to Egypt’s first anti-harassment legislation, Diab’s deftly woven narrative tells a gripping, timely tale of social injustice. Winner of the Silver Hugo for Best Film at the Chicago International Film Festival and the Best New Director Award at the Egyptian Oscars.
