"THE CITY OF THE DEAD" - Another screening tonight February 14!

Following the great success of yesterday's screening of the documentary "THE CITY OF THE DEAD", the Italian Cultural Centre will host another screening tonight Tuesday February 14, 2012 at 7:00 PM.

Prepared and shot by an only Egyptian crew over 5 years (2004- 2009), "THE CITY OF THE DEAD" is an Egyptian – Portuguese documentary that aspires to show the invisible soul of the cemetery. It tells the story of a million people living inside the cemetery where they have everything: bakeries, cafes, children‘ schools and puppet theatres.


The screening will be in Arabic with subtitles in English
