The Center for Contemporary Arab Studies presents

Egyptian Contemporary Film Series 

Microphone

After years of being away in the United States, Khaled returns to his hometown of Alexandria for his mother’s funeral. Upon his return, he attempts to make a fresh start by mending ties with his father and his former lover. His efforts are in vain as both relationships prove to be irreconcilable. While spending time walking the streets of Alexandria, Khaled stumbles upon youth struggling for their under-ground music bands, art, and ideas. Enthralled by their stories, his life soon becomes intertwined with theirs. The film, released on the day the revolution erupted in 2011, speaks to a young, innovative, and unrestrained generation. 

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. 

Each film will be followed by a brief discussion moderated by Dr. Adel Iskandar.
