MAHATAH - Side Stories from Main Stations
Sandra Gysi, Ahmed Abdel Mohsen, Switzerland, 2021o
Train stations are islands, detached between worlds and times. In the heat of Cairo, serenity helps; in Zurich, air conditioning or a dance. In both places, people with passion animate their little cosmos. In episodes, the film condenses into a collective rhythm of everyday life, whose common poetry unfolds a universally human power. Until the next train arrives or leaves the station, the world is united in Mahatah.
