Films by Ateyyat El Abnoudy
Institute of Contemporary Arts

Ateyyat El Abnoudy was raised in a village in the Nile Delta area. In Cairo she would earn her law degree in 1963, and a cinema degree in 1972. Her filmmaking tended toward short-form journalism, especially documenting everyday conditions of the poor. Each film is fifteen-minutes long. The last of the four shorts Souk Elcanto, also made for Egyptian audiences, turns the ethnographic eye back on London. El Abnoudy has been known variously as the ‘poor people’s filmmaker’, and ‘ambassador of documentary film’.
