The Thread And The Wall, is an attempt to understand the status of women in
contemporary Egyptian society by shedding a light on the issues and
problems that women face on a daily basis.
Also, the film is a documentation of the “Women On Walls” project, and
because art is the reflection of society, the project sought to empower
women by giving them a platform to express and display the associating
conflicts through Graffiti. The film closely followed this initiative with
its aspirations, its complications and its prevalent outcome.
In addition, the film clearly shows the dichotomous overlap between the
artistic process itself and the personal lives of the participants within
it, along with others, in an attempt to arrive at a wider fully-formulated
perception on the complex and often intricate role of women in society .
