It’s Countryside- Life outside Cairo

A fantastic short film shared by Zawia magazine documents life outside Cairo, particularly in Sohag in Upper Egypt. While the south generates massive state income from tourism in addition to providing much of Egypt’s food, wealth has been in the hands of too few and the money never circulates back into these local economies. Egypt’s highly centralized system has had severe impact on the economy and development of small and medium sized cities.
