Photocopy- File Photo
CAIRO – 12 November 2017: The Egyptian Movie "Photocopy" will screen in the closing of the Arabian Cinema Week in New York on November 23 at 6 p.m. The Arabian Cinema Week is organized by Moviepigs, which is an online platform tailor, made to screen Middle Eastern movies.
The screening of “Photocopy” will be followed by a seminar to discuss the movie. The seminar will be attended by the movie’s star, Sherine Reda.
The film narrates in a smooth manner the story of an old man, over 60 years old, who decided to open a shop for photocopying after retirement. He starts to re-discover the life that he is living, his love for his wife and the people around him.
The 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 old man and woman because these kinds 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.
