The Sandwich


As children play, work and help prepare a meal, we witness everyday life in a small rural town in Upper Egypt that seems to have escaped the passage of time - an illusion that is shattered in the film's final frames.

This screening was part of AiM’s focus on Africa’s Lost Classics, funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC).
