HALF A LIFE

Tamara Shogaolu
Script
HALF A LIFE is an emotional journey into the world of a young gay Egyptian who is fighting against the (political) persecution of homosexuals in his country. Torn between this threat and his intense love for Egypt, he asks himself whether he should leave his homeland for his own protection. This animated documentary gives refugees a voice and is an extremely worth seeing and important contribution to the topic of "safe countries of origin".
