A documentary Shot in Cairo and Berlin in 2013, deals with the day-to-day reality of school education in Egypt and Germany. It documents the everyday experiences at school of the two young girls Yasmin and Lisa, who live in Egypt and Germany respectively. In doing so, the documentary discovers the different worlds of education by experiencing the challenges and advantages the girls are facing in each school system. Researched and filmed from binary cultural perspectives, the movie allows the viewer an in-depth view into the social reality of schools in Egypt and Germany.
This subjective documentary by a German-Egyptian team of first-time filmmakers Azza Guerges and Rebecca Korang was shot in the framework of the project “Demystifying Prejudice” that aims at shedding light “on social, cultural and economic issues in EU and MENA countries in order to expand perspectives on socio-cultural topics and realities and foster journalistic talent.”
