Filmed in 2015 in Cairo, Womanhood, an Egyptian Kaleidoscope shows 15 women’s experiences in Egypt in the (post)revolutionary context. Presenting a kaleidoscope of these women’s perspectives and personal narratives using visual anthropology, the film works, along with the women involved, to deconstruct the different gendered stereotypes imposed upon them in their everyday lives. Womanhood presents an insight into (post)revolutionary Egypt, analysing the role of women in the political struggles there as well as these women’s changing social roles.
The event will commence with a brief presentation by the film’s Director, Florie Bavard. Ten extracts from the full film will then be shown (50 mins) with the perspectives being presented revolving around 4 key themes: Activism, Gender, Voice and The West. The screening be followed by a discussion with Florie Bavard, Professor Nadje Al-Ali and the audience present.
