Egyptian history is by all measures abundant with rich dramatic themes that are easily developed into sensational stories for the silver screen. The Pharaohs, Cleopatra, Tutankhamen and Ramses are only a few of the stories produced in Europe and the U.S, that have become classics in the history of world cinema, enriching the tapestry of international film productions for over a century.

He came to Egypt with his wife and his 10 year old son to enjoy its wonderful residence and to watch its immortal monuments pointing that Cairo Festival is so remarkable and contains a lot of different cultures.
