We will be going to see "A Day For Women" on Saturday, October 28th at 9pm. Below is the film synopsis and link to the trailer:

Opening film of the Cairo International Film Festival and official selection at the BFI London Film Festival, A Day for Women is the latest Egyptian film creating international buzz. In the film, the opening of a new swimming pool is the talk of the town — particularly because Sunday has been announced as a day for women. Bringing together very different women of a small community is an unexpected equalizer — no one is more excited than Azza, who dreams of wearing a swimsuit. Shamiya (Elham Shahin), considered a ‘loose woman’, finds herself talking about her life to an inquisitive and supportive audience. Even Lula ventures along — a sign that she is beginning to confront the grief of having recently lost her son. Naturally, the men of the community can't help but be curious and find their own colorful way of protesting against the women's day. From the director of One-Zero (Arabian Sights, 2010) Kamla Abu Zekry's latest film is a reflection on community, co-existence and freedom. —BFI London Film Festival
