"Living Skin" Wins Best First Film at the International Mediterranean Cinema Festival

08 Apr, 2011 

Fawzi Saleh's full length documentary film "Living Skin" has won the Best First Film prize at the International Mediterranean Cinema Festival held in the Moroccan city of Tatwan. In "Living Skin," the Egyptian director, who was an AFAC Arab documentary film grantee in 2009, documents the daily life of Egyptian children working as leather tanners in Cairo, and delves into their social relationships and their suffering in this hazardous environment.

 

The film, which also won the Jury Special Prize at the Abu Dhabi Film Festival, will soon have a chance to build on these successes when competing for the Audience Prize at The Hot Dox Canadian documentary film festival, one of the most important in North America. "Living Skin" will also be participating in the Munich International Documentary Film Festival.
