Luxor Screens at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival


Luxor film, by director Zeina Durra and producer Mohamed Hefzy, has been selected to screen atthe Karlovy Vary International Film Festival, Czech Republic (3-11 July). The film is selected among the festival's robust lineup of 15 films that will screen at 96 film theatres across 80 cities.

Founded in 1948, the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival is heralded as one of the oldest-standing film festivals worldwide, and the largest in Central and Eastern Europe.

Written and directed by Zeina Durra, Luxor follows the story of British aid worker Hana who returns to the ancient city of Luxor and comes across Sultan, a talented archeologist and former lover. As she wanders, haunted by the familiar place, she struggles to reconcile the choices of the past with the uncertainty of the present.

Luxor stars British actress Andrea Riseborough (Birdman), French-Lebanese star Karim Saleh (Vice), and Egyptian star Shereen Reda (Photocopy), Michael Landes, Salima Ikram and Shahira Fahmy

The Egyptian-Emirati-British film is a co-production of Film Clinic, in association with Film Factory and Front Row Filmed Entertainment, which distributes the film in the Arab world, while Totem Films handles its international sales, and Creative Artists Agency handles its distribution in North America. The film is executive produced by the BAFTA award winner and Oscar¬ģ-nominee Paul Webster.
