Video: El-Banat Dol, girls living on the streets of Cairo

"El-Banat Dol (These Girls) is a documentary that takes us deep into the universe of adolescent girls living on the streets of Cairo, a universe of violence and oppression, as well as freedom.
These girls astonish us by the strength they exude, the laughs that enliven them and the hardness they have to use to face each day.
They are women, and thus twice marginalised. Their existence, their lives and adopted codes defy the social models."

(2006, 68 mins.)
