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.
