Heliopolis

user
  Heliopolis (2009) is an indie film made by first-time director Ahmad Abdalla about the lives of five different characters living in Cairo's upper class Greek district of Heliopolis. While none of their lives overlap, they all share the same feelings of loneliness and stangnancy in contemporary Cairo life. When I met and spoke with Ahmad at the PSIFF 2010, the first thing I told him was how much I loved the film. Really, I was annoyed with myself by the midpoint of ...

 Cairo Time on Aruba Time! Ruba Nadda and Patricia Clarkson on red carpet at Aruba IFF. The night before their premier, we met at the Aruba Golf Resort at The Burning Plain after party and over all-you-can-Mumms, I spoke with them both about their experience filming entirely on location in Cairo. In the presence of flipping and twirling Aruba Carnivalesque stage dancers- a truly Lynchian moment- they told me how marvelous and exciting their experience in Cairo was. From the looks of their l...

Another day, another red carpet in Aruba

You gotta love a little glam. "Bring it, girl!" my friend told me, as I raced to Aruba.  And the festival team 'brought it' too. So many red carpets, it turned the little island of Aruba into a little slice of Cannes on the Caribbean.        My editor, a seasoned carpet walker at Cannes, showed his sophistication by casually commenting on opening night in his suave French accent "yes it is a very good red carpet, it is so comfortable to walk o...

Patricia Clarkson speaks to fest21 on the Cairo Time red carpet from Aruba

He who hath not seen Cairo hath not seen the world. Her soil is gold; her Nile is a marvel; her women are like the black-eyed virgins of Paradise; her houses are palaces; and her air is soft, as sweet-smelling as aloe-wood, rejoicing the heart. And how can Cairo be otherwise, when she is the Mother of the World? --"A Thousand and One Nights" About Cairo Time starring Patricia Clarkson (Juliette)

Cairo Time: Red Carpet   Cairo Time's director Ruba Nadda, producer Daniel Iron and lead actress Patricia Clarkson arrived in Aruba in the midst of the first AIFF to the site of masked Aruban dancers and the bottoms up of Moet Champagne glasses.
