THESE GIRLS

Dir: Tahani Rached
Egypt / 2006 / 66mins

Intensely engaging documentary following a band of rebellious teenage girls living on the streets of Cairo. Most of them are fleeing homes of extreme poverty and abuse. The troubles they encounter on the streets, such as rape, drug addiction, prostitution, pregnancy and motherhood are not downplayed, but confronted with courage and vibrant camaraderie.
