Gout du Livre – with Alaa Khaled

13 November 2023 - 20:30 - 22:30

Writing an objective biographical work on his favorite director, and one of the most famous of his generation, is the perilous exercise undertaken by Alaa Khaled in his latest book about Daoud Abdel-Sayed. Focusing on scriptwriting on the one hand, and gathering numerous testimonials and interviews on the other, the author achieves a sociology of Abdel-Sayed’s films and depicts the major themes common to his works by linking them to the filmmaker’s personal life. One of the pioneers of Egyptian neo-realism, Abdel-Sayed has made numerous films dealing with the social problems inherent to his country, while tinting them with a very personal poetry. Debate in the presence of Alaa Khaled and Onsy Abou-Seif, Daoud Abdel-Sayed’s film set designer.
