Jeanne D'arc Masriya (Egyptian Jeanne D'arc)
Influenced by Carl Dreyer’s THE PASSION OF JOAN OF ARC (1928), EGYPTIAN JEANNE D’ARC is a modern documentary fusing genres through dance, poetic narrative and mythology to examine women's circumstances in present day Egypt. In the context of post-revolution Egypt, the film explores issues of women’s emancipation by drawing attention to women’s repression and their feelings of guilt particularly amongst Egyptian female artistes.
