MUBARAK’S NIECE
(La nipote di Mubarak)

Written by Valentina Diana

Presented by Anton

Egypt: a country quite distant for politics and traditions from the Western ones. An ordinary person, “invisible to the world”, who works as a radio speaker becomes friends with Abdul, an Egyptian who prepares and sells kebabs in his shop full of postcards from his country. In the background is the Tahrir Square Revolution. Slowly their friendship and the events following will show many possible versions of each story. Which one lies closer to the truth?  

Running Time: 75 min.
In ITALIAN with ENGLISH Supertitles

 

About In Scena! Italian Theater Festival NY
In 2013 Kairos Italy Theater, the preeminent Italian theater company in New York City, together with the Italian KIT Italia, created In Scena! Italian Theater Festival NY, the first Italian theater festival to take place in all five New York City boroughs and beyond. The festival’s first edition was part of the 2013 Year of Italian Culture in the United States and it was supported by the Embassy of Italy in DC and Casa Italiana Zerilli-Marimò at NYU that, soon after, became one of the organizers. The festival has since become an annual event. www.inscenany.com
