Underground/On the Surface - Feature Documentary
Category: Arab Documentary Film Program
This is the journey of 3 popular underground musicians in Egypt, representing a controversial genre which was snubbed and rejected by the middle classes but is curiously making its way to the upper classes and intellectuals. It is a film about classism, social justice, revolution, hope, success and music. It is about rebellion versus conformism and mediocrity, examining post-revolutionary Egypt from a social and cultural perspective.
