under the skin 2017

A cinematic voyage into mental health

The first MEDFEST-EG edition came to the light in January and April of 2017,
Tackling mental health issues which have always been a part of the collective consciousness of communities. Whether spoken about loudly or shunned from public discussions, mental health has been and would always be a concern for us all and despite the occurrence of global changes towards dealing with mental health issues, stigmas are still there and correctly dealing with them requires communication; that would always be our goal.
