Oh,really?i thought it was about art!


It's very well known that arts are always used to make people from different cultures to get closer and understand about one another and that's what cinema industry is about and it's known that what politicians failed to do,arts can always manage to do it

Every year and with the Cairo international film festival coming(Cairo what?)The president of the festival announced proudly that Israel wont be participating this year as well(like every year)Because Israel is our enemy and because it's killing and bla bla bla.And though Egypt had normalized relations with Israel long time ago it's still not OK to have their movies on which indicates the eternal Egyptian stupidity Because even if the movie is good and carries a positive points for Arabs it shall be banned which means that those who work on that festival don't understand anything about cinema and art,they are just a bunch of dickheads who want kiss people's asses by preventing their enemy from participating in a festival no one ever heared of!!


Probably people here didn't see the Israeli movie(Kadosh) which is a wonderful movie that shows life of a family in the ultra conservative orthodox Jewish society and how the movie shows the human contradictions.this movie shows that religious zealotry is not good.and though the movie had been praised everywhere,it just can be shown here because it carries the Israeli thing!

But the festival had even done a better thing this year,it banned Denmark from participating and i guess every one knows why so no need for further explanation.so as we see it hasn't become a matter of cultural exchange and cinema criticism and enjoying a good piece of work,it has become a festival to kiss stupid people asses and art comes at the end,as everything in Egypt art is not a question anymore,more crappy movies and songs as long as it bring money.Well,i can tell you be happy with more banning and we will wait which country will be banned next year so you can feel good about yourselves about a festival no one knows about and that you shove it all up your asses after changing its name to (Cairo international stupidity festival)a festival that you never see elsewhere!!!

Banning is dumbing everyone down. Art should be for art's sake.

With the internet, they will drive themselves dizzy trying to ban everything.

What's the status of that arrest blogger? Is he still in jail or worse?

May I ask when did Israel recognize the Palestinian art work? or even the Egyptian?
