One nation,but a world apart

Nader G El Attar & Rienne Gamal´s film hideous is one of the subjects of Global Voices video editor Juliana Rincón Parra´s article secrets on Video. The seven and a half minute long film shows the gap between the affluent and poor in Egypt , how they stumble upon each other, day in and day out, but in reality living separate lives. The contrast with half of it being filmed in colour and the other in black & White as well as the famous Louis Armstrong tune What a wonderful world adds a dimension to the topic of the have & have not´s.

Thanks to Nader and Rienne for making the film , and to Juliana for showing it to a broder audience on GV!

I would have loved to have it on my blog, but i couldn´t find it on youtube , so for now the only way to see it to my knowledge is through Nader´s facebook account were he has uploaded te film, you can reach it via the Global Voices article above.
