This Egyptian Artist Superimposes Classic Movie Moments on Their Modern Day Locations
Mac Toot takes a unique look back at the Golden Age of Egyptian Cinema.
Remember the good always when romance involved Roshdy Abaza getting on the train at the last minute to stop Souad Hosny from marrying the wrong man and then making sure he stayed out of the picture for good by getting him arrested under pretext that Soad Hosny is underage and being kidnapped in Sa3'eera 3al Hob? While in retrospect, his actions may have been questionable, we can't fault a man in love for going to such great lengths to save his beloved. Who of us doesn't get nostalgic when watching Fouad El Mohandess sweeping Shweekar off her feet, or Singing along to Abdel Halim Hafez's songs?
Local artist, Mac Toot, seems to be a big ol' softy with his latest project, in which he pays homage to some of our favourite films from Egypt's Golden Era in his recent #CairoFilmed/#CairoThenAndNow project, where he cleverly superimposes iconic scenes and moments from old school movies onto the modern version of where they were filmed.
