[Video] Scenes from the Exploring Taboos Project

As part of our Rising Voices in Egypt initiative, which is made possible with funding from the Heinrich Böll Foundation – Regional Office Middle East, we commissioned three videos that would provide a closer look at each of the projects. Egyptian filmmaker Mahmoud Saber and his team recently completed the three videos which we will publish here on the Rising Voices website.

For these three videos, we also utilized the Universal Subtitles platform to add subtitles in English. The collaborative platform allows for additional languages to easily be added, and we invite readers to add subtitles in other languages.

The first video features the Exploring Taboos Project led by team members from Nazra, who have been providing workshops for Egyptians on the use of digital media tools as a place to have conversations about taboo subjects.
