Promoting cross-cultural understanding, new media artist Tamara Shogaolu is one to watch. Her film Half a Life is a timely story of activism and hope, set in the increasingly dangerous, oppressive and unstable sociale climate of Egypt. After a traumatic encounter, a young, gay Egyptian joins the LGBTQ rights movement. When his safety is jeopardized, he must choose whether to stay in the country he loves or seek asylum elsewhere.
