Award-winning Egyptian film ‘Trapped’ (2021) will soon be released on Netflix this Thursday, July 7th. In the making for 10 years, the film is set during the 2011 revolution and follows three different stories about seven women who become trapped both metaphorically and literally, whether she’s taking refuge in the back of a shop, hiding in a crumbling apartment building, or locked in a bathhouse.
The 87-minute long film, written by Rasha Azab and Manal Khaled, features women from all walks of life as they adapt to the same difficult circumstances. It first premiered at South by Southwest Film Festival in Austin, Texas earlier this year, becoming the first Egyptian film to be shown there in 10 years.
‘Trapped’ was featured at several international festivals including El Gouna Film Festival, Palestine Cinema Days and the San Diego Arab Film Festival, and earned an award for Best Feature Film at Tunisia’s Human Screen Festival.
