Out on the Street, 2015
Directed by Philip Rizk and Jasmina Metwaly (Film Duration: 1h 11min)
This is a film about workers. Throughout the ongoing Egyptian Revolution, some workers have lost a relative or friend; most continue to be exploited by factory owners and many fight back and resist. This film mixes documentary and fiction in order to see the Egyptian revolution from the workers’ perspective beyond the factory’s heavy gates, beyond the frozen assembly lines and rusty machinery. The film challenges both the visual discourse of the role of labour workers in film as well as the workers’ political narrative in the context of the revolution in Egypt.
