Poisonous Roses

Ward masmoum

Directed by Fawzi Saleh
Egypt, France, 2018


In this skittish portrait of poverty in today’s Egypt, the camera follows 22-year-old Saqr and his 28-year-old meddlesome sister, Taheya. He wants to flee from the grubby tanners’ district where he lives and works; she will do anything to prevent her brother drowning at sea as a boat refugee.
