CAIRO – 21 November 2017: The Egyptian movie "Photocopy" will screen in the Cairo International Film Festival on Friday, November 24.
"Photocopy" will also screen at the fifth International Arab Cinema Meetings in Marseille on November 22.

Moreover, "Photocopy" will be shown as the closing film of the Arabian Cinema Week in New York City on November 23 at 6 p.m. Arabian Cinema Week is organized by Moviepigs, an online platform tailor-made to screen Middle Eastern films.

The film narrates in a smooth manner the story of an elderly man, who, upon his retirement, decides to open a photocopying shop. He starts to re-discover life, his love for his neighbour and the people around him.

Egyptian journalist and "Photocopy's" scriptwriter, Haitham Dabbour, previously stated in an interview with Egypt Today that he chose to present a love story between an elderly couple because these types of love stories “have not been well presented in the Egyptian cinema.”

"Photocopy" won El-Gouna Golden Star Award for Best Arabic Feature Narrative Film. The movie stars Mahmoud Hemeida, Sherine Reda, Farah Youssef, Aly Tayeb and Ahmed Dash, and is directed by Tamer Ashry. "Photocopy" will screen for the first time in Egyptian cinemas at the end of December.
