Under the Auspices of Malmo Arab Film Festival and Celebrating International Women's Day
Nadine Khan Attends the Screening of Harag W' Marag at Arab Women's Film Day in Sweden
Only few weeks following its screening at Zawya cinema, Nadine Khan's Harag W' Marag continues to be a cinephiles-stunner at international film festivals. Nadine Khan's award-winning Egyptian feature this time takes part at Arab Women's Film Day within Malmo Arab Film Festival in Sweden. Celebrating International Women's Day in its edition this year, the Arab Women's Film Day is an annual gathering with the aim of highlighting issues in topics such as equality, feminism, women's rights and freedoms in the Arab cinema.
With the attendance of Nadine Khan, the film will screen on March 7th, 2015, at 07:00 pm at Biograf Spegeln movie theatre which is located on the main square in the centre of Malmo.
Marking Nadine Khan's feature directorial debut, Harag W' Marag is produced and edited by Dina Farouk. The film is written by Khan, with a script by Mohamed Nasser and stars Ayten Amer, Mohamed Farrag, Ramsi Lehner, Hani El Metnawi, Osama Atiya, Sabry Abdel Monem and Sayed Ragab.
A social drama, the film is 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.
Harag W' Marag has taken part in several global film festivals and received numerous awards including a Special Jury Award from Dubai International Film Festival, which hosted its world premiere. The film earned its director Nadine Khan the Golden Dagger award for Best Director from Muscat International Film Festival and won the Grand Prix from the Arab Film Festival of Oran. Harag W' Marag also received the Best Film award, Best Screenplay award for Mohamed Nasser and Best Editing for Dina Farouk from the 62nd Egyptian Catholic Center Cinema Festival.
