CAIRO- 20 October- 2017: Famous Egyptian actor Amr Waked will start filming “Ebtasem Enta fe Masr” (Cheer Up, You Are in Egypt) in the next few days.
“I am proud with this experience because it will achieve two goals for me. The first is that it will contribute to the promotion of tourism to Egypt, through the scenes that will be included in the film in many coastal and archaeological areas. The second is that it will impress my fans, who love cinema,” said Waked.
The film is the first Egyptian-Russian joint production and is a return to Egyptian cinema in Russia after a long absence since the late director Youssef Chahine presented the film “El Nas w el Nile” (People and the Nile) in collaboration with Russia in 1964. The story depicts the story of four Russian women traveling to Egypt in search of safety following the disintegration of the Soviet Union in the early 1990s.
