The Malmö Arab Film Festival (MAFF) has revealed its official selection which includes Egyptian filmmaker Marianne Khoury’s documentary Let’s Talk. The 95-minute documentary, which was released last year is in Arabic with English subtitles, will be showcased on October 11.
The documentary explores the trajectory of four generations of women from their family, an Egyptian family from the Levant where life and cinema have been intimately linked and still are.
A cross look between family archives where the real and the fiction and the autobiographical films of Youssef Chahine mingle. From Alexandria to Cairo, passing through Paris and Havana, an intimate and visceral narrative where mother and daughter cross space and time to trace destinies and question their emotions.
Marianne Khoury is based in Cairo. For more than three decades, Khoury has been a close collaborator of Youssef Chahine. She produced and co-produced around 30 award-winning feature films and documentaries. Marianne was instrumental in introducing the first edition of the Panorama of the European Film in Cairo in 2004.
