Available on FilmRise, Prime Video
After writing the Egyptian blockbuster The Island (2007), Mohamed Diab turned to directing, tackling a pressing social issue in Egypt: the rampant sexual harassment and assault of women in both private and public spheres. His 2011 drama tells the story of three women, each having experienced (or regularly experiences) predatory behavior from men. In detailing how each woman confronts her situation-from violent retaliation to a lawsuit-Diab paints an important picture of everyday courage and defiance.
