Filmed over three years 'The Tentmakers of Cairo' tells the story of Egypt's struggle with democracy through the lives of a small community of artists striving to maintain their ancient art form.


The story spans the turbulent years, from Egypt’s 25th January 2011 revolution through to the June 2014 election of Abdel Fatah al Sisi as President of the Arab Republic of Egypt.

Filmed, Produced & Directed by Kim Beamish
