Omaret Yakobean: The Yacoubian Building

"An eye-catching construction, the Yacoubian building in Cairo was long regarded as the last word in comfort and elegance.

Through interwoven stories of a number of the residents, the film paints a portrait of corruption, fundamentalism, prostitution, homosexuality, and drugs in central Cairo and creates a vibrant but socially critical picture of contemporary Egypt." - Container
