Nouran is a female cyclist in Egypt - and this fact alone is remarkable, as there are not many women who do so or dare to. She founded a movement to change society perception regarding women on bikes. An activity against patriarchal prohibitions present in day-to-day life.
When we meet her on a remote farm close to Aswan, she just returned from the award ceremony of the "Aswan Women International Film Festival 2023", where the movie "Big Little Women", directed by Nadia Fares, featuring her activity as an activist won three awards.
