    ACID Film Week: 'Dans Ma Tete un Rond-Point (A Roundabout In My Head)' Screening @ Zawya

    Marking Cannes ACID Film programme, Institut Français d’Egypte screens Algerian-French documentary, Dans Ma Tete un Rond-Point, which gives us a glimpse into the lives of abbatoir workers in the post-Arab Spring world. The film particularly focuses on 20-year-old Yusuf and middle-aged Ali Bey (i.e. Uncle Ali), both of whom are seen as products of their historical environment: Ali, a son of post-colonial Algeria, when what is now Africa’s largest nation broke free of French control after a bloody civil war; Yusuf, part of the Arab Spring generation, bewildered by a multiplicity of options- including escape to the supposedly more stable continent just across the Mediterranean. Ticket price: 25LE   For more information, click here

    With Andromida being one of the oldest progressive rock bands in Egypt that plays for Pink Floyd, we expect impeccable showmanship with nothing such as setting our expectations too high.
