Cinema Film Detail:
Short Films by Yousry Nasrallah
Saturday 20 October, 4.00 p.m. (Presented by Nasrallah)
Although Nasrallah’s first film was a feature-length (Summer Thefts), only one year later, he directed two short films (One Day with Youssef Chahine & The Extra). Seventeen years later, he directed a segment in the feature-length film 18 Days, which came as a response to the first wave of the Egyptian revolution by ten filmmakers, each directing a short segment. The film was screened at Cannes Film Festival in 2011, where Egypt was the guest of honor. The program will include these three rarely seen shorts by Nasrallah.
- One Day with Youssef Chahine (1994)
- The Extra (1994)
- Interior/Exterior (2011)
