    • Synopsis
    • Egyptian Jeanne d’Arc is a hybrid film that melds documentary with mythic story elements, poetic narration and dance to convey the true stories of resistance by Egyptian women since the outbreak of the revolution in 2011. The film follows in the footsteps of Cairene filmmaker Iman Kamel as she journeys to the Western Desert where she discovers a diary written by a Bedouin girl named Jehanne. Inspired by Jehanne’s struggle to break free from patriarchal oppression and become a dancer, the filmmaker attempts to trace the whereabouts of Jehanne by reaching out to fellow Egyptian artists, all women, who share with her their own stories of aspiration
      and resistance over the last 5 years.
