Cairo Film Festival
CAIRO FILM FESTIVAL 2016: TJUVHEDER BY PETER GRÖNLUND
By Tara Judah
It may be a stretch to call them ‘popular’, but Sans toit ni loi (Vagabond, Agnès Varda, 1985), Wendy and Lucy (Kelly Reichardt, 2008) and Cathy Come Home (Ken Loach, 1964) are engaging and well revered films about homeless women. Tjuvheder (Drifters), which has screened in Sweden and Norway and at a handful of international film festivals, is a Swedish film about two homeless women who are stuck in a cycle of poverty and substance abuse.
