21.6. Cairo Jazzman (OV)

Dokumentarfilm von Atef Ben Bouzid · 82 mins · Deutschland, 2017
OmeU – Original mit englischen Untertiteln


In Atef Ben Bouzid's directing debut, passionate Amr Salah is an Egyptian jazz composer and musician trying to organise the Cairo Jazz Festival; a risky undertaking, not only because of his limited experience, but mainly also due to the increasingly intolerant social climate. This political music documentary simultaneously paints an atmospheric portrait of the Egyptian capital.
