Two young men enter into a bet to see if people in their neighbourhood are still kind and will give money to a homeless man.

Love Letters are a series of short films telling stories of the place made by young residents of al-Khalifa neighbourhood in historic Cairo shot during 2020-22.
The project is a collaboration between Megawra (Athar Lina Initiative) and filmmaker and geographer Jessica Jacobs from Queen Mary University of London and Filmmaker Vitor Hugo Costa (Metafilmes).
The project used a unique place-based heritage approach to develop the original stories with the young filmmakers. The original workshop was planned to take place on location in al-khalifa in the summer of 2020 but due to Covid-19 we had to redesign it and move it online. The films were completed in June 2022.
