Your One-Stop Guide for Cairo Cinema Days 2

Zawya’s indie Arab film bash was every humble cinephile’s darling last year, and it looks like it’s going to be even better this time around.

Few organisations can compare their love for cinema to that of the visionary folk behind Misr International Films and their prodigal offspring, Zawya. Yesteryear, they had the brilliant idea of hosting their newest cinematic celebration, Cairo Cinema Days, and it was quite the talk of the town. So thanks to popular demand, it’s back again this year.

The second round of Cairo Cinema Days will host a carefully curated collection of outstanding yet sadly obscure entries in the Arab film scene from all corners of the Middle East; Algeria, Jordan, Tunisia, Morocco, Syra, Lebanon and our own little Egypt will take centre stage on the indie silver screens of Karim Cinema, Zamalek Cinema and Cimatheque, from the 23rd of April all the way to the 30th. Not only will you be indulging your eyes and ears, you can humour your inner filmmaker with a slew of workshops, Q&A sessions, discussions and masterclasses with directors, actors and cinematic creatives from around the Arab world

Would-be viewers and film fanatics can feast their eyes on 34 narrative films, short films, documentaries and more from around the Middle East, and we've taken the liberty of putting together all the info you'll possibly need for your future viewing pleasure.

A yearning in an unsettled space that, once, was shared and breathed by two cineastes, living in two different cities, trying to sustain their longing through each other’s scattered images, sounds, and monologues, pieced together in one film, one dialogue, one soul flown away by loneliness and fallen apart like a forsaken angel. As Far as Yearning is that dialogue-in-progress taking the shape of a film composed by sound, performed by words, perforated by images still in motion. Ghassan Salhab and Mohamed Soueid are embracing a sense of survival. This film is a sixth sense they nurtured in a world that has become faceless. Their film essay is a personal attempt to be two in one. Disguised as men, they walk among men who left behind their shadows.

A small coastal town is in a state of excitement at the impending visit by the President.

Beirut, the day of the World Cup. A woman walks through the relatively quiet streets, people are indoors watching the game, or going about their domestic business. But there seems to be a disruption in the television signal, as isolated moments of mild chaos on the rooftops evidence. Then the still of the hot summer’s day is torn apart by an air attack, another interruption to be absorbed, another minor irritation Beirutis refuse to allow to quash their spirits.

The film depicts the last days of eastern Aleppo’s siege. Just before its fall, Milad Amin, residing in Beirut, follows up with his friend Ghith, an activist and photographer, who like so many other civilians still remains in the besieged city. Following Ghith via his camera through the ruins of the city, we hear the two friends talk about people’s situations while waiting for their fate amidst the fighting parties. The film is an intimate and personal recording of civilians’ sufferings during this time of siege, hunger, and war – and a recording of both the relationship of activists brought together during the civil movements and of the geographic distances that separate them due to violence, bombing, and killing.

In Duo for Two Missing Persons, the filmmaker asks: could dance act as a conduit between life and death? The video traces the artist’s interest in mass graves and the grisly reality that, in such situations, bones must, by default, mix with each other, in a sort of macabre dance of disjointed bodies. To illustrate this, he mapped the number of possible combinations that two dismembered bodies could be reassembled into and sent it to a choreographer friend, asking him to use it as inspiration. The resulting choreography, which calls for painstakingly slow, continuous movement, manifests the stillness of death meeting the animation of life.The film draws on the artist’s background in theatre and performance, while illustrating the forensic-like method of investigation he shares with postwar Lebanese artists.

The film uses notes written and filmed during summer 2006 as a personal account of the experience of war. The first part oscillates between day-shots and night-shots and features a soundtrack expressing the idea of time passing, awaiting, interrogations and fears experienced in such an unusual time. The second part is a journey to south Lebanon, a part which was devastated during the war. Nights and Days alternates between peaceful landscapes and ruins. The film questions the relationship between image and sound as it reflects on notions of 'beauty' and 'horror'.

Based on Skype conversations with Gaza-based photographers, fixers and drivers who were behind specific images that were transmitted from screen to screen in the summer of 2014. The film probes the face of mourning and grief- its digital embodiment, transmission, and representation. It asks how the gaze gets channeled within the digital realm, and how empathy travels. Equally, how the documentary signifier - and its abstraction - operate when viewing suffering from behind one's LCD screen. What exactly is viewing suffering ‘at a distance’? What is the behavior and political economy of the image of war? And who is the ‘local’ in the representation of war?

I hesitated for a long time. More than a step forward, more than one backwards, more than one by the side. Thousands of times the same gaze through the windows of my own end of the world”. These are the opening words of Chinese Ink. Indeed, there will be no rest along the way, but only meandering paths nourished with reminiscences. Salhab sketches out an inner world while the windows, as the only connection to the outside, become a frame and a mirror where faces are inscribed as they tend towards a landscape to live in. Thus, a movement unfolds between the inside and the outside, between the past and the present.

In her directorial debut, Mary Jirmanus Saba deals with a forgotten revolution, saving from oblivion bloodily suppressed strikes at Lebanese tobacco and chocolate factories. These events from the 1970s, which held the promise of a popular revolution and, with it, of women’s emancipation were erased from collective memory by the country’s civil wars. Rich in archival footage from Lebanon’s militant cinema tradition, the film reconstructs the spirit of that revolt, asking of the past how we might transform the present.

The story of this film project revolves around one of the biggest production studios in the Arab world, and its lost archive. Located on Charles Helou Boulevard in the East of Beirut, the remains of Studio Baalbeck, a white modernist villa with open doors, broken windows and a garden full of wild plants and pine trees, appear like a lifeless place. But even if this biggest production studio in the Arab region initiated in 1962 had fallen victim to the Lebanese civil war (1975 to 1990), it has nevertheless left behind a treasure of an archive of voice recordings and films that still are famous throughout the entire Arab world, spanning productions from Erbil to Amman, and from Damascus to Cairo. Negligence by the Lebanese authorities has led to mold growing on parts of this archive inside the damp underground warehouses.

As goals fade and it becomes clear that no action really matters, meaning fades too. At that moment, desire fades, movement fades, and the body follows suit. Heaviness replaces lightness, the soul is fraught with anxiety, and the body wants to break free from this burden. The suspension of action, the fading of meaning, and the futile search for the source of such heaviness triggers anxiety that invades both my body and mind. It drives me to search for my tragedy but I do not find it, for it is not tangible. I cannot resist, cope with, or mourn a tragedy that I do not see. I search for it in memory, among clear and faded pictures, in Damascus and Beirut, in the shadows of my close friend Louay’s stories, between my prisons and his own. I finally find it in my body. But as soon as it is severed, I begin searching for it all over again.
