CAIRO – 13 October 2017: The Tunisian-Algerian film ‘’Augstine Ebn Demoaha’’ (Augustine: Son of her Tears) by the veteran Egyptian director Samir Seif won the Artistic Achievement award for Mediterranean countries from the Alexandria International Film Festival.
Seif received the award from Helmy Namnam the Egyptian Minister of Culture and the great cinema critic and head of the festival Amir Abaza.
’Augstine Ebn Demoaha’ revolves around the historical character of Augustine and his impact on the western world, specifically on Roman society. The film presents the life of religious philosopher and professor Augustine. His mother, Monica, succeeded in saving her son from committing the sin of embracing extremist doctrines, which was not easy for his mother at the beginning. Monica continued praying and crying until Augustine returned to the faith. The movie is written by the scriptwriter Sameh Samy.
