Director: Maged Mohamed & Sonja Maria Kröner
“7 years before” is a short film about the last hours before a husband or lover is leaving his
girl behind, for changing his home for an unknown future.
The stories’ perspective is from the female point of view. In the center point of this short
film are the emotions and thoughts of this remaining day and of the moment of saying
goodbye to each other.
The strong and overwhelming emotional landscape of this women is shown by the
choreographer and director Maged Mohamed in his most concrete language, the language
of the body called dance.
Maged Mohamed is impressed by this moment of such strong feelings and also by the
thought, that this situation not only happened in the past: No, it is still happening every day
to millions of women!
