DUBAI: Egyptian short film “One Night Stand” is set to screen at the Louvre Museum in Paris on Wednesday.
The screening will be part of the “Les Rencontres Internationales Paris” event, which started on Feb 23, that explores contemporary art and new movies.
“One Night Stand” is directed by Palestinian filmmaker Nour Abed and Egyptian director and producer Mark Lotfy.
The film is based on the directors’ real-life encounter in Beirut with a European man who was about to join the Kurdish militia to fight Daesh in Syria.
The conversation was secretly recorded on a mobile phone and serves as the script for animated modeled situations and performative reconstructions of that night.
“Les Rencontres Internationales Paris” will be streamed online due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Visitors can watch the livestream, that will also feature films, hosts discussions and performances, here.
