Egyptian censors turn down racial American film
The Egyptian head censor, Madkour Thabet, nixed to give the green light for screening the American film The Guardian at the Egyptian venues “for its racial ideas, which depict an Arab person as evil while it depicts the Jew as a good man of peace.”
Thabet confirmed that he banned the film “because it adopts anti Arab and inciting attitude in an apartheid manner that is unacceptable to us.”
He indicated that the Egyptian Distribution Company expressed its appreciation of the censors’ decision and called upon them to expedite the ban official documents so that the company will be able to re export the film copies.
The Guardian is an American film produced by John Hertzberg under the direction of John Terlesky. Its scenes are set during the period between 1991-2003 in a superstitious framework.
The film tells that an archeologist called Letchman discovers a cemetery that goes back to the Samaritan era and if it is opened synchronously with the moon’s eclipse a baby boy will be born as a good luck sign. This phenomenon, according to the film, comes true with the archeologist who is allegedly gifted with a son he names David.
This superstitious side encompasses an evil dimension, as there is a bad powder near the cemetery called chaos, which is responsible for evil and fighting among human beings. The strength of the powder, according to the film, is incarnated in an Arab boy called Talal synchronous with the birth of David.
Talal dies and the evil power in him migrates into the bodies of others. This continues until David in his capacity as the world rescuer kills the last person with the evil power -- Albawaba.com
