Spanish filmmaker gives movie fans a glimpse of his love affair with Alexandria
On Wednesday, young Spanish director Marc Almodóvar will show his 2010 production 'Alexandria, A Love Story' in the auditorium hall of the Bibliotheca Alexandrina.
The film is "an anthropologic view of the Mediterranean city seen through the eyes of a foreign resident," the artist writes in the film's synopsis.
The Spanish director has been living in Egypt for several years. He also directed a documentary on the 18 day uprising called 'Leave' (Erhal), and a short film 'Women Are Worth 100 Men' about women's labour strikes leading up to the revolution.
The film is in Arabic, with English subtitles available. The film will be followed by a talk by the director and time for audience Q&A and discussion.
