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

 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...

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. Not a bad night entrance to this tropical island and no doubt a stark contrast to the location where there film is entirely set, in Cairo Egypt. When I asked Patricia what it was like to film in Cairo, she smiled and shook her ...

Tribeca Travelogue: Postcards from Manila and Cairo

I can't wait until April 20th to tell you about LOLA and CAIRO TIME, the two visually stunning films (non-embargoed this time!) I saw back-to-back on this lazy pre-festival screening Saturday. I feel like somebody just gave me frequent flier miles.    Quite a juxtaposition between the two trips. LOLA, Brilliante Mendoza‘s new film,is brilliant and yet depressing ("life with the sad parts left in for two elderly women some place around the globe where it rains a lot"...

Cairo movie buffs distracted by the beautiful game

user
  CAIRO ¬ The joke going around Cairo today is that the Algerian Tribute in the city's international film festival will be withdrawn if the Algerian football team beats Egypt in this Saturday's crunch game. It is only a joke, but the fact is that even the most ardent of Egypt's film buffs are focused on the crucial world cup qualifier that will see one or the other country through to the World Cup finals in South Africa next year. Punters have commented that the orga...
