The celebration kicked off with a documentary called “story of homeland”, the movie portrayed the struggles that Egyptian women have been facing since the 1919 revolution, and highlighted those who sacrificed their lives for the better well-being of the nation.

The documentary has also featured the formation of the women’s committee for popular resistance back in 1951, the committee that was formed by the Egyptian activist Doria Shafiq; in an attempt to fight off the British occupation in Egypt.

Another topics were tackled in the documentary, such as the establishment of the National Council for women in the year 2000, and the granting of Egyptian women the right to run for parliamentary elections for the very first time in 1956. In addition to highlighting the female volunteers that were granted a spot in the Egyptian army.

Last but not least, the documentary shed the light on several remarkable women, including Fayza Abul Naga who got appointed Presidential Adviser for National Security Affairs making her the first Egyptian woman to assume such post, and Aisha Rateb who was Egypt’s first female ambassador back in 1979.

During the event, President El-Sisi called for enforcing laws that protect women’s rights, and eventually end domestic violence. The event also included the discussion of crucial topics such as early marriage and depriving of education and post-divorce rights.

Finally, President El-Sisi hopes to witness results soon for the “Mawada” program, which aims at raising awareness on marriage responsibilities among youth.

In a spectacular display of cultural revitalization and preservation, Egypt stunned the world with her Golden Parade. The royal procession rivaled those of  centuries past in extravagance and the awe it left in its wake. The official transference of 22 mummies, 18 pharaohs and four queens from The Egyptian museum in heart of Cairo to the next nucleus of Egyptian history and culture, The National Museum of Egyptian Civilization. This momentous event came to being after a year long preparation in which the efforts of key individuals led to an unparalleled display which captivated millions across the globe. The colossal effort behind the scenes owe its thanks to several companies and individuals.

The phenomenal production by Kokoro Agency heads Production Designer and Art Director Mohamed Attia and partner Shady Ezz, oversaw the process to ensure the visually distinct nature of the Golden Parade. Following the event Mohamed Attia “The happiness and pride of the people come from how we as Egyptians are capable. That we’re capable of meeting the international standard, with it being accomplished yesterday before the eyes of every Egyptian and the world.” This substantial work stands as an example of Egyptian creativity and attention to detail which Shady Ezz remarked “after a year and a half worth of preparation, I’m delighted with the domestic and international reception”. Having successfully captured the grandiosity and awe inspiring spectacle of the Ancient Egyptians Kokoro and everyone involved in the production of the Parade have forged work that has earned the pride of Egyptians everywhere.

The visual journey that was embarked upon by every viewer who witnessed the parade was one guided by the hand of DOP and Director Mazen El Motagawel. Responsible for the vision of the event, his efforts ensured a spectacle that offered viewers a unique glimpse into the past, which he says “will never be repeated in a lifetime”. Through intricate rehearsals and preparation, he ensured that every second that was viewed on air deserved to be cemented in the minds and hearts of Egyptians. The parade necessitated a delicate touch and a carefully orchestrated sequence of events, which presented substantial challenges which required an unmatched creativity to ensure such a vision comes to fruition. He stated that “the lighting design was extremely technically demanding regarding how to manage lighting on such a grand scale, especially the coordination between the parade and the visual elements”. Mazen El Motagawel’s work was complemented by Ahmed El Morsi’s remarkable directing and filming the retelling of ancient Egyptian history by prominent Egyptian actors as well as the official anthem by the acclaimed artist Mohamed Mounir. All theses elements came together to mark a new chapter in modern Egyptian history in which it solidifies its identity. One that embraces the legacy of its past and its optimistic path towards achieving its potential.
