World Premiering at the Cairo International Film Festival
Official Poster for Horror Film Ammar Unveiled
The official poster of the horror film Ammar, directed by Mahmoud Kamel, was unveiled on the filmÂ’s official Facebook page, coinciding with the announcement of its world premiere within the Midnight Screenings section at the 42nd Cairo International Film Festival (CIFF), which will be held from 2 to 10 December.
The poster portrays a set of elements that play an important role in the events of the film, such as bodies submerged underwater along with a musical instrument and a mannequin. Overlooking the water is the facade of an inconspicuous villa, with a dim light emitting from its windows, and all of this is surrounded by a dark background.
A misfortunate family, a couple with three children, moves to the Gharibs' Castle as their new house. Their excitement soon wears off when the house swallows them one after the other, taking them to a horrifying world of past crimes that took place between its wallsÂ…or maybe these cursed walls are behind these crimes.
Directed by Mahmoud Kamel, and co-written by Ahmed Al-Dahan and Haitham Al-Dahan, Ammar stars Sherif Salama and Eman El Assi. The film is produced by Nilewood and distributed in the Arab world by MAD Solutions.
