Happy New Year

Some may disagree with the title of this article, whether they think I mean the past year or the new one. In fact, I am talking about both years. As one of the people from the film industry, I can say they are indeed two happy years, not just one. A quick tour of Egyptian cinema …

On hope and gratitude in 2013: the rock and the tide

That is usually the extent of my excitement on this night. But it seems that a lot of my dear friends take this evening rather seriously, …
