On a corner-lot in the Egyptian city of Alexandria, female weightlifters train to become Olympic champions. Following in the footsteps of some of Egypt’s most famous athletes, 14-year-old Zebiba trains under the tutelage of the visionary Captain Ramadan. Can Zebiba direct her focus to be the weightlifting champion that her coach feels certain she is capable of becoming?

The screening is in partnership with Birds Eye View Reclaim the Frame.

Lift Like A Girl will be introduced by Mia Bays, and followed by an online Q&A with Mayye Zayed and Isra Al Kassi which will be shown after the screening and be available on Selects.
