I/Eye in Conflict: Waves

Sunday 17 May, 18.00-19.30
Cinema 2, Barbican Arts Centre, London

iIt is claimed by some that the Egyptian revolution ignited first in the port city of Suez., home of filmmaker Ahmed Nour.

30-year-old Nour invites audiences to share his perception of five special periods of his life, each portrayed as a wave. Using voice-over, animation, and a poetic style of sound and cinematography, Waves attempts to capture the essence of the generation of the Egyptian revolution.

An emotionally resonant and powerful account, reminiscent of films like Persepolis and Waltz With Bashir.
