  1. Mother of the Unborn

    Nadine Salib / Egypt / 2014 / Documentary / 85 mins
    In a forgotten corner of Egypt lives an infertile woman who is yearning for a child. Hanan lingers between a dream that is slowly slipping away and the struggle of finding a place where she belongs. While everything that surrounds her bustles with fertility and mortality, she wonders how to give meaning to the time that she has in between.
