Filmed in Alexandria, Egypt...Ahmad Abdalla's Microphone (finally) sheds some light on the underground music/artistic scene in one of the oldest, most beautiful cities in Egypt. With little of what I've seen from the trailers, which fulfill some serious teasing, I can't wait to see it. I can blab about the awards it won and the international film festivals it has participated in, but sadly that is no longer an indication of anything.
From a distance, the movie looks like an excellent blend of art, music, acting, directing, sound, cinematography and most of all, conveys a sense of honesty as it stays true to the city's mood and atmosphere. I love the colors too.
Microphone will be in Egyptian Movie Theaters starting on Wednesday, 26th of January. Go see it.
