Mohamed Hefzy Wins Best Screenplay Award for From A to B at the Trans-Saharan International Film Festival in Zagora
Screenwriter Mohamed Hefzy has won the Best Screenplay Award at the Trans-Saharan International Film Festival in Zagora for his comedy film From A to B, which he co-wrote alongside Ahsraf Hamdi and Ronnie Khalil based on the story by Emirati filmmaker Ali Mostafa, the film's director.
From A to B is a lighthearted comedy about three estranged childhood who travel on a 2,500 km road trip from Abu Dhabi to Beirut in memory of their lost friend. If what happens en route doesn't make them crazy, it might just bring them closer.
The film is considered to be Hefzy's comeback into screenwriting, as its release at the beginning of 2015 in the Arab world coincided with the release of Warda and Aswar Al Amar, two films also written by Hefzy.
From A to B stars Egyptian comedian Shadi Alfons, Saudi stand-up comedian Fahd Albutairi, and Syrian Fadi Rifaai with Yousra El Louzy, and Syrian actor Samer El Masri, with guest appearances by an outstanding group of Arab and foreign stars and filmmakers, including Saudi filmmaker Ahd, South Korean comedian Wonho Chung, American actress Madeline Zima (Californication), Palestinian actor Ali Suliman, and Palestinian Leem Lubany, alongside a number of Egyptian stars including Khaled Abol Naga, Maha Abou Ouf and Mohamed Hefzy.
The film is produced by twofour54 and Image Nation Abu Dhabi with support from Paul Baboudjian, Mohamed Hefzy and Ali Mostafa.
