Shot amid the turmoil of revolution, this impressive debut takes place in the suburbs of Cairo and traces one day in the life of a daughter as she and her mother struggle to look after her father, who is housebound following a stroke. Echoing the work of Chantal Akerman, Lofty’s film is noted for its disorientating use of space and time to convey the solitude and claustrophobia of life.

The screening of Coming Forth by Day on Tuesday 2 July 20:40 will be introduced by producer, curator, writer and translator Elhum Shakerifar.
