Ahmad Izz postpones a year of happiness for a day of anger
Egyptian actor Ahmad Izz has decided to postpone the screening of his latest film “365 Youm Sa’adah” (365 days of happiness), which was scheduled for release this week. The decision came as a result of Ahmad’s way of showing support to the protests taking place in Egypt under the slogan “Youm Ghadab” (A day of anger).
The media consultant for the production ‘Arabica’, which produced the film, Osama Rushdi said that the cast and crew of the film decided not to screen the film as a way of showing their support to protestors in streets.
Osama said that Egypt has never before witnessed protests like these; therefore the time is not appropriate to release the film in times where anger is spreading throughout the streets of Egypt.
With regards to setting a new date for the screening of the film, Osama said that it depends on the conditions of the situation in the streets of Egypt.
