Honoring the Late Ezzat Abu Oaf

Les Petits Chats Screens at Darb 1718


MAD Solutions, in cooperation with Darb 1718, organizes an exceptional screening for Les Petits Chats film, directed by Sherif Nakhla, to commemorate the memory of the late Ezzat Abu Oaf, on Thursday, July 11.

The late actor Ezzat Abu Oaf joined the music world as a pianist in a band that played foreign songs in Arabic. Despite the band's overwhelming success, Ezzat had to abandon it after his father asked him to dedicate his time to his university studies, in order to graduate. He rejoined the band in 1973.

Darb 1718 contemporary art and culture center is a non-profit organization founded in 2008 to host different art mediums and cultural events. The center provides workshops, programs and initiatives to educate and mentor emerging artists and offers them a space to exhibit their work alongside established artists. Darb 1718 is an art center and gathering point for all art events in Egypt.

Les Petits Chats landed its world premiere at the 18th Arabian Sights Film Festival for Contemporary Arab Cinema in Washington, DC in 2015, where it captivated audiences and the "full-house" signs were raised during its two screenings. The film also received a nomination for the Arabian Sights Jury Prize. The film took part in several international film festivals, including the Cascade Festival of African Films in Portland, USA, Silk Road Film Festival in Dublin, Ireland, and the Arab Cinema Week in New York.

Directed and produced by Sherif Nakhla, the film is named after the legendary band Les Petits Chats of the cherished era of the 60s and 70s. The six members, who are now major celebrities and musicians, are reunited to perform one last time in a night to remember in spring 2010. Les Petits Chats film is an insight into the lives of the former band-mates during their glory days that answers the questions evoked within each one of them by tracking their present lives and life choices since their breakup in the 80s.

The film showcases interviews with major celebrities and cinema stars at that time and nowadays, including Ezzat Abu Oaf, Omar Khairat, Sobhy Bedeir, Samir Sabri and Mohamed Salmawy. Les Petits Chats is distributed by MAD Solutions in the Arab world.
