Tamaas

Saved From the Waters

Film series by Safaa Fathy

Tamaas/Earth Arts Justice, ArteEast, and Maysles Documentary Center present nine films by Egyptian/French poet and filmmaker Safaa Fathy that offer a window into Fathy’s expansive body of work and practice. Present in her films as both poet and documentarian, Fathy deftly and tenderly brings to light searingly raw elements of life, religion, and society—sometimes in little known pockets of the world—through an intimate and reflective lens that reveals the subtle and complex depths of human psychology.

These films are presented alongside three virtual live streamed events with Safaa Fathy in conversation with esteemed artists, thinkers and educators on a biweekly basis.
