Egyptian Jeanne d’Arc is a hybrid film that melds documentary with mythic story and dance to convey the true stories of resistance by Egyptian women since the outbreak of the revolution in 2011. The film follows Iman Kamel as she journeys to the Western Desert where she discovers a diary written by a Bedouin girl named Jehanne. Inspired by Jehanne’s struggle to break free from patriarchal oppression, the filmmaker attempts to trace her whereabouts.
Egyptian filmmaker Iman Kamel is always on the move and has travelled extensively in China and southern Africa. Iman Kamel received the Award of Iconic Women Creating a Better World for All at the Women Economic Forum (WEF) in New Delhi, India.
