Duration: 73 minutes
Shortly after the death of his special uncles, Didier Frenkel descends into the basement of their shared home and finds a treasure: an ancient archive of animated films from Egypt starring Mish-Mish Effendi, the Arab equivalent of Mickey Mouse. His uncles kept this surprising chapter of their lives undercover. Didier begins restoring the films and unveils the story of the rise and fall of these pioneers of Arab animation.
Films can be streamed on any “smart” device: a smart TV, a desktop or laptop computer, a tablet, or even a smartphone. If you have the capacity for phone-to-TV-screen mirroring, that is also an option. Two hours prior to the film screening window you will be sent an email with a unique screening link. For the safety and integrity of our film festival and patrons, you must not forward this link to anyone. The link will only be good during the designated 72 hour screening time. The intent of the single virtual ticket is that members of a household will view together. We recommend viewing the film earlier in the window to allow time for troubleshooting or technical difficulties to be addressed.
