One of the highlights from covering documentaries for this year's Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) for ByBlacks.com was interviewing Egyptian filmmaker Jihan El-Tahri. Her film, Nasser, featuring the 1950s Egyptian ruler put so much into perspective. She tackled the unsteady foundation of a country rocked by politics through the decade-long efforts of this military man. And audiences at #TIFF2015 were all the more grateful for it. What an incredible breakdown of a presidency and a comprehensive explanation of a complicated religious and cultural history. Bravo to the filmmaker and TIFF who programmed the doc.
