Co-produced by Patricia Drati

Amal, an angry teenager, comes of age in post-revolution Egypt, undergoing tremendous change.

Filmed over five years, Amal is an observational self-discovery journey that follows a young female from the age of 15 till the age of 20 while she’s searching for her place, identity and sexuality in a male-dominant society. 

As she grows from childhood into adulthood, she realizes how limited her choices are being a young female living in an Arab police state.
