We had Karim El Hakim at CILAS, who in his talk gave insights into the various aspects of film making with emphasis of documentary film making and films made in the context of developmental process and projects. It was an interactive talk with the director taking us through some of his work. At the end of the talk a brief preview of his upcoming documentary 1/2 Revolution was shown. The talk was followed by interesting Q&A session on questions of censorship in Egypt, relation between camera and individuals, society, the importance of research in film making. All in all it was one more interesting evening at CILAS.
