It promises a vibrant city life, but the Egyptian Giza suburb of carefully designed luxury district and sterile boredom. Successive reach the apartments, but most of emptiness Kong. The safe, green environment, the dream country is not attractive enough, or only a few affordable. The soulless town residents live and upper-class Egyptians. Many young people also. Isolated, but the tradition still shows kick up their lives to the Belgian Bertrand Zaza entitled Dreamland series.
All roads lead to New Giza. Cleaner, safer and more beautiful environment. The life you've always dreamed of. "Such sentences are advertising to attract prospective residents dreamland. Those who can, Cairo and Giza bustle of the mega polis noisy, crowded and dirty from running away luxury housing projects.
Zaza Bertrand in the 2011 Egyptian revolution was followed by three years, how they live kick up the traditions, identity search, but a part of the reality shut themselves teenagers.
The Egyptian economic elite girls growing up in families no longer follow their mothers and grandmothers way of life. The modern world has been adapting Arabic is spoken in an English accent, the burka and chador instead of miniskirts and high heels pulled.
The residential area is separated by walls, not even mere mortals can get, but there is an owner who is not enough: it still draws a fence in front of its property, a sense of security and privacy overrides everything else. Guards, cameras can be transferred only to get into. It is no coincidence that one of the subjects Bertrand, Nour escape the oppressive silence. The busier Heliopolis would go back, but the pool and the garden would not give up.
The photographers everywhere - at parties, holidays, school exams - was followed by the girls, who seem to enjoy themselves aimlessly looking for, while the outside world, so the seething Egypt hardly wanted to acknowledge.
No New Giza is the only district where lives shut up in the elite. Upper Cairo also has its own small town, where everyone knows everyone else, there is no passage to the intensive caste, there really should be born.
It was as if a Hollywood movie set would look the part of the city. The architects did not much care about the local traditions, whether they could build a lego city would have too. Everything is mixed with everything Spanish hacienda, Roman villas copied, which parody to score.
The city closed the girls moved from Cairo to party private chauffeurs. The wealthy Zamalek clubs are going to have fun, no surprise, but the girls every weekend is a party. The Red Bull with vodka goes the same way as any other European club.
"I like to live in Egypt with my friends and my family, but I want it to go to Canada or England" - said one of the girls, who had dreamed to become a fashion designer, but now you go on to the business world. Mother's example, who works for an oil company.
Where ten years ago it was desert, today there are growing modern cities in the promise of comfort and safety.
Zaza Bertrand spoke in an interview that it was a shock to when this false world awareness. created by real estate investors uninspired setting unrealistic and extremely self-centered girls met.
