Elham Shahin returns to the cinema
Prominent Egyptian actress Elham Shahin is to begin work sessions with scenarist Majida Khair Allah and director Khaled Yousif in preparation for her upcoming film "Reesh Na'am" (Ostrich Feathers) directly after the Muslim holiday Eid El Fitr. The film will be produced by Cinema Production and shooting of the first scenes is scheduled to begin at the beginning of next year.
According to the London based Elaph, the director has not yet chosen the rest of the cast of the film, but had decided that he wanted Elham for the leading role. Elham was chosen to head the committee to judge movies in the Rabat Film festival, which was held in the Moroccan city of Rabat. Movies from all over the world participated in the festival like France, Russia, Armenia, Algeria, Morocco, Senegal, South Africa and many others. Elham added that participating in such events enables her to see other cultures and watch different ways of making movies, which gives her more experience in the industry.
Elham expressed her happiness to be chosen for such an important event and commented that the films competing were overall very good. The movie that won the prize for this year was Armenian.
About the Egyptian movies, Elham said that she noticed the bad quality of movies that dominated the market lately but she also said that this phenomenon is going to fade and many good movies are now being made like “Sahar El Layali, Ahla Alawqat, Hub Albanat”.
The movie “Khali Min Elkolistrol” (Cholesterol Free) was Elham’s last film experience. The actress revealed that she is very bold in choosing her roles and loves challenges in her career which lead her to taking risks and accepting different parts. –Albawaba.com
