Where Dead People Used to Live

Εκεί που κάποτε ζούσαν οι νεκροί

World Premiere
Cairo, Egypt: a megacity of 25 million residents came out of another political crisis in 2011, following the well-known “Arab Spring.” Life in the streets now flows: noise, traffic, people are looking for ways to make a living. Close to the city center, a vast cemetery has become a shelter for the homeless. Almost half a million people live among graves and the dead, trying to survive in the most quiet neighborhood, known as Arafa, the city of the dead.
