Al-Khoroug Lel-Nahar / Coming Forth by Day (Coming Forth by Day)
(EGYPT)

Those who have fully enjoyed their bodies cannot be submissive. And those who never have? Can they survive the slavery of solitude and impotent acceptance of what they can't change or embrace? This is the every day story of two women taking care of their sick man.


Challatt Tunes / Challatt of Tunis (Challatt of Tunis)
(TUNISIA-FRANCE)

A moped rider, razor blade in hand, prowls the streets of Tunis slashing the most beautiful buttocks of women strolling down the city’s sidewalks. They call him Challatt. In Tunisian dialect, the word means blade and is most likely an oral distortion of Gillette, the famous razor blade. The shadow of Challatt and the violence of his actions change the dress code of Tunisian women: no more tight jeans, no mini-skirts, no carefree strolls… A young Tunisian director seeks out this true living myth. She wishes to make a point of finding out why Challatt was after women just like her in Tunisia.
 


Le Veau d'or / The Golden Calf (The Golden Calf)
(FRANCE-MOROCCO)

17 year-old Sami has been sent by his dad to a small village in the Atlas mountains of Morocco to make a man of him. All Sami wants is to go back to France before his 18th birthday so he can get French nationality and get back together with Melanie, his French girlfriend. Sami and his cousin Azdade come up with a plan to steal an ox from the Moroccan royal family's ranch and sell it to pay for the crossing back to France.


Moug / Waves (Waves)
(EGYPT-MOROCCO)

Using an artistic combination of documentary footage, archive images, animation scenes, animated characters representing the family members of the filmmaker, and his own voice-over, the director tells the story of himself and of his generation, born with the birth of Mubarak's rule in the early 80s of last century, and of his forgotten home city, Suez, the famous city of the Suez canal that triggered the revolution to the extent of becoming known as “The flame of the Egyptian revolution”.
