Friday 24 May at 6pm
The Bateman Auditorium,
Gonville & Caius College, Trinity Street, Cambridge, CB2 1TA
The Centre is proud to present a film screening of the award-winning film ‘Salata Baladi’. An “Egyptian salad” is how the filmmaker Nadia Kamel describes her own extended family, which unites different religions and cultures together in love. When she becomes conscious that her little nephew Nabil is growing up in a time in which conflicts between cultures and religions are on the increase, she decides to show him the diversity of their own family.
She plans a trip to Italy, Israel, and Palestine with him to meet the supposed strangers of their own family. The film tells the fascinating story of three Egyptian generations and at the same time provides a portrait of a cosmopolitan Egypt.
Following the performance there will be the opportunity for a conversation with the Director.
