Cairo

I think this is the only movie produced in Egypt by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures in 1963. the film is about man called Major whose in Cairo after being released from a German Prison. He is there to proceed with his plan to steal the jewelry from the King Tutankhamen exhibit at the national gallery. This plan has been on hold since he was jailed. He enlists the help of Willy, Ali, Nicodemos, Kerim and Kuchuk to carry out his detailed ‘foolproof’ plan. Perhaps the curse of the Pharoahs is more than a superstition because Major soon finds out that while the robbery may be easy, getting out with the jewels may be the hardest part.

Mideast Tunes

mideastunes.com

“Mideast Tunes” is a multifaceted platform for underground musicians in the Middle East and North Africa who use music as a tool for social change. Founded in 2010 in Bahrain, the site has expanded to serve as a primary resource for discovering up and coming Middle Eastern talents.

Their mission is to bridge barriers of faith and geography to unite young people committed to fostering constructive discourse in the Middle East through music.  The core of the project manifested from their desire to promote bands and musicians that would otherwise never be given a second glance in the international scene.  They feel that is because most people would never think to look to regions like the Middle East and North Africa for highly thought provoking music.  The need to change this is their driving force.

They believe music can change the world and that the musicians of the Middle East and North Africa will lead the way.

Portraits of Fayoum

The tradition of drawing the portrait of the deceased on his mummy appeared in Egypt in Roman times, as it meant that the deceased would recognize his face during his resurrection.

The Roman believed in the idea of resurrection, a belief also held by the Ancient Egyptians. The film highlights the archaeological Fayoum portraits, discovered by some peasants there. It also describes the methods for drawing portraits on wooden boards, in addition to explaining the philosophical idea behind these portraits.
