Event Details

The Center for Contemporary Arab Studies presents

Egyptian Contemporary Film Series 

CROP and Egyptian Short Films 


CROP (49 minutes) is an artistic documentary co-directed by Johanna Domke and Marouan Omara. The film reflects upon the impact of images from the Egyptian Revolution in 2011. Instead of showing footage from the revolution, the film is shot entirely within Egypt's oldest and most influential state newspaper Al Ahram. The film is narrated by a photo-journalist at the newspaper who missed the revolution due to a hospital stay.

This is the first screening of the film in Washington, DC.
 
Shorts Films:

The Chair Carrier (11 mins)--Tarek Khalil/Yusuf Idris

Maydoum (13 mins)--Omar Robert Hamilton/Ahdaf Soueif

Blue Dive (16 mins)--Mustafa Youssef/Huda Asfour (Music)

How Naguib Mahfouz Got His Name (3 mins)--Karim El-Shinawy/Adel Iskandar

The "Egyptian Contemporary Film Series" is a weekly film series taking place during the Spring 2014 semester at the Center for Contemporary Arab Studies (CCAS). The series will showcase some of the landmark and controversial productions from Egypt since 2000. During this period, Egyptian cinema, the most established and productive film industry in the Arab world, underwent a significant transformation due to factors including privatization, the rise of a new generation of filmmakers, and a burgeoning independent film collective, all of which contributed to an increasingly dynamic cinema. 

Films will be followed by a brief discussion moderated by Professor Adel Iskandar.
