After a traumatic encounter, a young, gay Egyptian joins the LGBT rights movement. When his safety is jeopardised, he must choose whether to stay in the country he loves or seek asylum elsewhere as a refugee.
Half a Life is a timely story of activism and hope, set in the increasingly dangerous, oppressive, and unstable social climate of Egypt today.
Beyond the Screen
The Shared Planet Society is a group of students who are passionate about issues surrounding the environment and social justice. We run a daily vegan cafe, a food cooperative and weekly vegbag scheme, as well as running campaigns on issues we care about.
We are the world’s future leaders, entrepreneurs, farmers and consumers. The Slow Food Youth Network (SFYN) was founded to make youth familiar with Slow Food’s philosophy that says that all food should be Good, Clean and Fair.
By learning more about our local food systems in a fun and social way, we hope to bring people together to help create change within the global food system.
