Celebrating the 55th Anniversary of the Egyptian Film Association
Director Nadine Khan's Harag W' Marag Screens at the Russian Culture Center
As part of the 55th anniversary celebration of the Egyptian Film Association, the Russian Culture Center will screen Director Nadine Khan's film Harag W' Marag (Chaos, Disorder) on Tuesday, 24 November at 7:00 pm. The celebration will be held under the aegis of the Minister of Culture, Helmy El-Namnam.
Produced and edited by Dina Farouk, Harag W' Marag (Chaos, Disorder) is Khan's feature film directorial debut and she also penned the story herself, while the screenplay is written by Mohamed Nasser. The film stars Ayten Amer, Mohamed Farag, Ramzi Lehner, Hani EL Metennawy, Osama Attia, the great Sabry Abdel Menem and Sayed Ragab and is produced by WIKA Production & Distribution and is distributed around the world by Mad Solutions.
Harag W' Marag (Chaos, Disorder) is a social drama that tells the story of lost love in a controversial setting; Zaki (Farrag), Mounir (Lehner) and Manal (Ayten Amer) are in their twenties, and living in a confined community where basic needs are met yet chaos and disorder brew. The two boys are in love with the same girl who finds herself the subject of a bet for a football match between them, the winner marries Manal. This story reflects a football and play-station youth and how they deal with their emotions in a community that is increasingly closed off and isolated.
Last September, Nadine Khan's Harag W' Marag (Chaos, Disorder) ran exclusively on ART in Eid Al Adha.
