Rarely does a film bring us so close to both a man suffering from illness, supported by his loved ones, and to the environmental causes of his affliction. Here the camera points the finger at the Nile, polluted by the many chemical plants spewing waste from its banks, against the backdrop of Egypt on the cusp of revolution. This is Safaa Fathy’s poetic art - knowing how to blend her dying brother with the river’s troubled waters, and the surging anger of the Egyptian people.
