WBEZ, Worldview: Ahmed Rehab discusses the history of Egyptian cinema

Starts at the 15 min. mark

Egypt’s film industry has been around since the late 1800’s, producing films not just for an Egyptian audience but for countries throughout the Arab world. In many ways Egyptian films have reflected the country’s political reality, whether you’re looking at the 1930’s and issues of censorship or films produced in the post-colonial years. Film contributor Milos Stehlik and Ahmed Rehab, Executive Director of CAIR-Chicago, tell us about some of Egypt’s most well-known directors and take us through the history of Egypt’s film industry.
