Mohammad Saved from the Waters
Safaa Fathy 
Egypt / France, 2013
Arabic, with English subtitles --95min

Mohammad Fathy lived all his days next to the Nile. And he was as sick as this highly polluted river. He suffered from chronic kidney failure, which killed him. The film tells his story both during his life - his refusal to buy a kidney from a poor "donor" - and after. Mohammad Saved from the Waters also deals with one’s relationship to the body, tradition, religion, family, healing, and survival in the context of Egypt after a revolution that precisely wonders about the respect of human dignity and the human body.
