Revealing the First Still from the Film
Middle West Films Wraps up Filming on Kiss Me Not
Middle West Films and Studio Misr have just wrapped up filming on Kiss me not, which stars Yasmin Raeis and Mohamed Mahran. In addition, the two slates have revealed the first still from the film. Seeing the potential early on, MAD Solutions jumped on board partnering both in the marketing and distribution of the film.
Starring Yasmin Raeis, Sawsan Badr and Mohamed Mahran, Kiss Me Not takes place on an Egyptian movie set, following a young director and his young starlet -an actress known as Fajr- during the shooting of his highly publicized film.
Kiss Me Not is written and directed by Ahmed Amer, who found himself in filmmaking after six years as a corporate banker. Amer has directed a string of short films including Al Maktob, which participated in Cannes Short Film Corner and wrote award winning screenplay Ali and the Goat and co-wrote the Venice-awarded Winter of Discontent (El Sheita Elli Faat) in collaboration with Ibrahim El Batout, Yasser Naeim and Habi Seoud.
Founded in 2008, Middle West Films is an Egyptian production company with works expanding to include a number of significant films in recent years such as Mohamed Khan's Factory Girl, Ayten Amin's Villa 69, and feature-length documentary In Search of Oil and Sand.
