BY FAWZI SALEH (EGYPT, 2010)
Director Fawzi Saleh's debut feature documentary is an eye-opening investigation into the dire living and working conditions of children employed in the manufacture of natural leather products in Cairo.
Jury's Special Award, Abu Dhabi International Film Festival
Saleh's first foray into socially relevant cinema is well crafted and subtle. He lets the kids tell their own stories, confident that once we know them we'll have to wonder what lives they might have had if given the chance to grow up far from the heaps of rotting skins. ‹‹ Merrie Whitmore, Hotdocs.ca
