The management of the Cairo Periodic Film Festival in its 43rd session announced the cancellation of the premiere of the movie “Memory”, which was scheduled to be shown at 6:30 pm today at the Nafoura Theater in the Opera House.
The festival revealed that there is a technical problem that caused the cancellation of the film’s showing, and that the movie ticket will be recovered by returning it to the box office, and the rest of the shows for the same film can be seen on the previously announced dates.
“Memory”, directed by the Palme d’Or-winning Thai director Apichatpong Wierazithakul and starring international actress Tilda Swinton, revolves around Jessica who goes to Bogota to visit her sister, where she befriends Agnes, an archaeologist. Jessica travels to a small town to see Agnes at the excavation site, and they share memories by the river.
The film participated in the official competition of the Cannes Film Festival 2021, and won the Jury Prize, and was nominated for the Palme d’Or.
The activities of the Cairo International Film Festival will continue until December 5, with all precautionary measures taken in accordance with the instructions of the Egyptian government and the World Health Organization, in order to ensure the safety of the participating filmmakers, the public and the festival team.
The Cairo International Film Festival, one of the oldest and most regular festivals in the Arab world and Africa, is unique in being the only festival in the Arab and African region registered in Category A in the International Federation of Producers in Paris (FIAPF).
