Cairo as Told by Youssef Chahine

Youssef Chahine
1991 Egypt

Mixing styles of documentary and fiction to blur the lines between what is real and what is acted, Youssef Chahine creates a portrait of Egypt’s bustling capital, a major center of the Arab world. But by filming Cairo with his unique sense of artistic digression, Chahine transforms this portrait of a city into the self-portrait of a filmmaker.
