The Cave (La Grotte)

 

Ahmed Ghoneimy

 

 

Egypt

23’

Jesuit Cultural Center, Alexandria

 

Ghoneimy’s slice-of-life film follows angry young musician Adham through the contrasting landscapes of an ever-evolving Cairo. For Adham, working class with limited opportunities, the city is an arena where the strong survive and the weak fall by the wayside. When he reaches out to an old friend, he finds he has moved on – and up – and the foundation of their relationship is not what it once environment that is contemporary Egypt 

Ahmed Ghoneimy who studied filmmaking at the Jesuit Center in Alexandria, is an Alexandrian native, where he majored in Expressive Arts. He is now living between Prague, where he studies philosophy and Cairo where he works. Stints as a cameraman and assistant director were followed by his own critically-acclaimed work – his second short film fiction, Bahari, which won the Hamburg Short Film award at the Hambourg Short Film Festival, and had its European premiere at the Rotterdam International Film Festival.
