The Veil Short Film

Why Watch? Running into a blind alley during the early demonstrations at the start of Egypt’s Arab Spring, a young woman finds brief safety and a bleeding man. Without asking questions, she commits a profound act of humanity and spirituality.

Shot with a sense of urgency (and a small camera budget), this 60-second short from Mohamed Salama is about intensity as much as it is about reflection. The only human voices are the disembodied, dream-like chants from the street punctuated by gun shots, and without any dialogue between the leads, it offers a direct signal about the power of actions over words — especially when they are transmitted from one person to another.

We’re partnering again this year with Filminute, and we’ll be featuring a new short film every day this week (that you can go vote for) from the festival which highlights one-minute-long movies and runs through September 30th.

What Will It Cost? One minute.
