6 best Egypt documentaries that take you to the heart of modern Egyptian society

RTD’s Egypt documentaries take you to the land of the Pharaohs to see what has become of this North African country in the modern world. You can visit a Cairo suburb where the entire community lives off trash from a giant dump. Or, see how Christians in this Islamic country have increasingly become targets of violence since the Arab Spring of 2011. In RTD’s Egypt documentaries, you’ll meet a woman who ‘became’ a man to raise her family after her husband died in this extremely patriarchal society. You’ll also check out a trailblazing school in the resort town of Dahab that encourages water births and teaches babies to swim to make them strong and brave.
