BLIND CAT

directed by
Ahmed Ezzat Elalfy

 

Six cats, blind, would like to realize their desires. There are those who would like a doll capable of saying baba and mama, who a piece of bread stuffed with meat, who a book, who a girl dressed in blue … simple dreams, after all. But a big obstacle prevents them from realizing them.

For the children of this society, a life in peace, happy, is a distant dream. Underdevelopment, carelessness, rejection of other opinions can never generate a happy person. Society observes our lives, changes them, sometimes successfully, sometimes fails. And often, even when it wins, we end up destroying what we have conquered. The anxiety of personal success annihilates the rest.

Nobody will listen to us. We have no other choice, to live, than to try to save ourselves.

Cats are blind, blind as young people who can not fight for what they want and prefer to hide in false stories by killing their dreams.

To open your eyes and live, it is necessary to unite and fight, with hope and determination.

And so cats, no longer blind, gather their peers and occupy the streets. It is the beginning of the Egyptian revolution, the revolution of January 2011.
