Microphone - Film
Every skater was talking and asking lately about the upcoming movie that features for the first time the Egyptian Skateboarding scene and specifically the Alexandria skateboarding scene.We are happy that Yassin Koptan who is a key rider for skateimpact was chosen as character in the movie, accompanied in some scenes by Karim alexander and Amin Rida.Microphone movie is produced by Mohamed Hefzy -- Film Clinic, Co-producer Khaled abol naga and directed by the talented director Ahmad Abdalla.The story goes as folowing,a young man named Khaled returns to his native city of Alexandria after an extended sojourn abroad, only to realize that the people he left behind, namely his girlfriend and his family, have moved on. His girlfriend has decided to emigrate and his father wants nothing to do with him. Alone and disconsolate, he takes to the streets and falls down the proverbial rabbit hole. In his absence, Alexandria itself has suffered something of a major change, morphing into a modern city, full of hip-hop musicians, graffiti artists, filmmakers and emancipated young women. Enraptured by this new incarnation of his hometown, Khaled attempts to get in on the action, as it were, cobbling together whatever money he has to give back to the community, and support this burgeoning creative movement. But as Khaleds personal and professional life become inextricably intertwined, he too undergoes a significant change.Ahmad Abdalla (Heliopolis) brings juice and youthful fervour to the action, buoyed by some remarkable musical performances (most of which are provided by non-professional musicians that call Alexandria home). On rooftop sessions with punk rock girl bands, or in dingy underground venues, the surging life of a genuine youth quake is going on. This form of DIY culture creates a vivid portrait of an Egyptian city and its people in the midst of a vibrant cultural revolution. An exciting addition to a growing wave of North African cinema, Microphone is bursting with life, sound and energy.
