A programme by Fondazione Mediterraneo to favour the mutual understanding through meetings, images and music
Film "HOLOGRAM" is based on a poem, that I wrote as an inspiration for my camerawomen, just before we left to Cairo. I wanted her to travel her first time to Cairo with eyes like a new born but burdened with my strange and contradictory feelings about being in the old home city, and also to feel the pulsing Silence in the midst of the Chaos in this Mega city. The process of not being a tourist and a stranger anymore, being home again and at last parting, is a whole seismographic universal movement. HOLOGRAM functions like a messenger for a film project, where the cities Cairo and Berlin fuses into one visionary world.
Iman Kamel born 1964 in Cairo, she lives in Cairo and Berlin since 1987 where she studied fine arts and film at The University of Arts and the Film Academy. Her films include 'NOARA' 9 Min Beta SP (1995), 'KHADIGA' 5 Min Beta SP (1997) and 'HOLOGRAM' 10 Min Beta SP (2002). She is at present working on a long term film project that transcends the cities Berlin and Cairo into one visionary cosmos. NACHIKET 38 Min Beta SP (2004) is her first full length lyrical Documentary about a small village school in Northern India, where teachers and children are living intensively together and digging deep into questions and sources of learning. Iman Kamel is interested in the immaterial poetical capacities of Film.
