Both Mahmoud and Zeinab join in the search for the original version of an Egyptian film that was made back in the 1980s, all copies of which were confiscated for unknown reasons by the government film agency at the time. ‘Experimental Summer’ is a fantasy journey into the world of filmmaking.
The film premiered in the Forum Expanded section of the Berlinale in 2017.
Mahmoud Lotfy is an independent Egyptian director, who previously participated in the making of several independent films, and one of the founders of Otaku Digital Film Productions. ‘Experimental Summer’, is his first feature fiction film, which took over three years to shoot.
