Catch a free screening of the Egyptian film, Kilo 64. The UAE premiere of Kilo 64 brings home an Egyptian tale of growth, struggle, and commitment. The film follows the journey of Wael El-Shenawy, an ambitious pharmacy graduate who makes a radical career change following the events of 25 January 2011. He starts a farming business at Kilo 64 off the Cairo-Alexandria desert road with the aim to make a social impact — but not everything goes as planned. Filmed over two years, Kilo 64 is a tale of two generations as it follows the journey of a young entrepreneur trying to revive his father’s 20-year-old dream.
The screening is free and open to all, and seating is on a first come first serve basis. This screening is part of the November in Alserkal Avenue programme.
