In Camera had its world premiere at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival and weaves the tale of Aden, portrayed by Nabhaan Rizwan, a young actor entangled in a nightmarish cycle of auditions. Following numerous rejections, Aden embarks on a quest to discover a new role for himself.
Amir El Masry gained international acclaim for his role in Limbo (2020), where he clinched a Scottish BAFTA and secured a British Independent Film Award nomination. In 2020, the actor was also honoured with a BAFTA Breakthrough Brits award by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts.
El Masry’s talents extend beyond the silver screen, as he notably starred in Netflix’s hit series The Crown, portraying the young version of Egyptian billionaire Mohamed Al-Fayed, the father of the late Princess Diana’s partner, Dodi.
Additionally, he made an appearance in Netflix’s sci-fi drama The One, a TV series released in March 2021, adapted from British author John Marrs’ novel of the same name.
