On Sunday, January 5, 2014, the San Francisco Public Library will screen Cairo 678, a critically acclaimed Arabic language film from 2010 by a first time filmmaker Mohamed Diab. Diab was born in Saudi Arabia but completed his formal education in Egypt and the United States.
The film showcases three women from three different social classes in Cairo who come together in an uneasy alliance to combat sexual harassment, with unpredictable results.
Cairo 678 has a running time of 100 minutes and will be screened at 2:00 PM in the Koret Auditorium of the Main Library.
All programs at the Library are free and open to the public.
