Bukra fil mishmish

Shortly after the death of his unique uncles, Didier Frenkel finds a treasure: an animated archive from Egypt starring Mish-Mish Effendi, the Arabic equivalent of Mickey Mouse. His uncles have kept this chapter in their lives under cover.
Didier begins restoring the films in a lab in Paris and unveils the story of the pioneers of Arab animation. This is the moment when Didier’s mother strongly opposes the project.

10 min of original Mish Mish Effendi animations by the Frenkel brothers in Egypt in the 1930s will be screened.
