Saving Mohammad from Water - Feature Documentary
Category: Cinema
Year: 2010
Status: Closed

Inspired by the near death of her younger brother, Safaa Fathy's film Saving Mohammad from Water delves into popular conceptions of death and the body, in the context of public health and pollution in contemporary Egypt. The fictional Mohammad is dying of renal failure, but refuses on moral grounds to have a kidney transplant. Through his five-year journey, the film explores the government's complicity in the contamination of food and water supplies and how poverty and social pressure influence approaches to death.
