„An Enemy Of The People: The Journey To Survival“

A documentary film by Ibrahim Ghareib on the most popular theatre production in post-revolutionary Egypt and during 2013. The film tells the journey of an independent theatre company who decides to make a very provocative play (based on Ibsen’s text) addressing the issues of democracy, the corrupt regime, the rule of the majority and the manipulation of the crowd. The creation of the production and its premier happen under the rule of Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood, and while many questions of identity and challenges of survival are rising. The film shows different moments and contexts of performance through the whole year of 2013, under tear gas bombs or gunfire, or during months of curfew, or steps away from violent confrontations in Tahrir square. The film clearly traces the narrative line of the theatre production which transforms in performance, interpretation and reception in relation to the political transformations of Egypt, yet it also shows how an independent theatre group grows against all the obstacles, and how it explores its new political and artistic role while struggling for survival. „An Enemy Of The People: The Journey To Survival“ is a story about theatre as a tool for survival and change, and how a group bonds together to have impact, and how it connects with the audiences. The story of Lamusica Independent Theatre Group, of twenty men working under the leadership of one woman: Nora Amin.

Film: 55 Minuten.

Nach dem Film Diskussion in englischer Sprache mit Nora Amin und Ibrahim Ghareib.
