MUHAMMAD MUSTAPHA

EGYPT/ GERMANY[/edgtf_section_title][edgtf_animations_holder animation_delay=”500″][edgtf_accordion style=”toggle”][edgtf_accordion_tab title=”Synopsis”]

A character-driven observational documentary begins to follow Yehia, a bodyguard from Cairo, shortly after he’s released from prison ‘for using excessive violence in work’. This anti-hero’s desire of sustaining a stable family life with service oriented jobs is usually met with his anger problems, violent nature, and self-destructive tendencies. Through observing Yehia as he juggles ‘raw’ and ‘tamed’ performances of manliness to survive, the film examines how the masculine identity is constructed, how it's performed how toxic and destructive it can reach, and what forms of vulnerability are masked behind it.
