Filmed over six years, Mohamed Siam’s intimate and unflinching portrait of a politicised teenage girl in contemporary Egypt follows the titular Amal (whose name means ‘hope’) from the age of 15 through to adulthood. Confronting male authority figures and fellow protestors during the Arab Spring’s turbulent aftermath, she defies a patriarchal society to find her place in the revolution. (MA)
