Directed by Yasmina Benari
Documentary | France, Egypt | 2016 | French | English | 94 min




Titi is an 86-year-old Jewish Egyptian communist. Through his identity, his friends, his battles, and his civic choices, he embodies the polyglot, politicized, and secular country that once was. From his balcony, facing his “piece of Midan,” a part of the world renowned Tahrir Square, he has watched history unfold since 1935. At Titi's Balcony is a voyage, oscillating between inner and outer worlds. As you open the blinds, you will experience the space between Titi's colorful past, fleeting images of the present, and the onrushing kaleidoscope we call the future.
