El-Baydha Wal Hagar

Back to listing

This film, which was given three different English titles, Eyewash, The Egg & The Stone and The Jugglers, recounts the sordid life of a Philosophy teacher in a corrupt society. Mistaken for a fortune teller, he uses tricks to manipulate people. This dark social satire starring Ahmed Zaki is a rare case of an Egyptian film that toys with the fantastical.
