Harag W' Marag Returns to Egyptian Theatres for Two Weeks at Zawya

After a successful festival tour reaping several awards and accolades, Nadine Khan's
Harag W' Marag film returns to screen in theatres through Zawya cinema. Produced by Wika for Film Production and Distribution, the film will screen in Odeon cinema, Downtown starting Wednesday, February 4th, 2015, for two weeks.

A social drama, the film is the story of lost love in a controversial setting; Zaki (Farrag), Mounir (Lehner) and Manal (Ayten Amer) are in their twenties, and living in a confined community where basic needs are met yet chaos and disorder brew.
