Film Clinic and Lagoonie Film Production have announced the release of Ras El Sana by writer Mohamed Hefzy
and director Sakr in Egyptian theaters, starting 5 February. The announcement coincided with the release
of the film's new trailer.
Landing its world premiere at the 18th Marrakech International Film Festival, Ras El Sana takes place over
the course of one night in a coastal resort town where the crème de la crème celebrate the New Year in
2009. As the celebrations are underway, relationships grow more complex, and secrets are uncovered,
changing the way they see themselves and those around them forever.
Written by writer/producer Mohamed Hefzy, Ras El Sana is the debut film for director Sakr and stars Eyad
Nassar, Ahmed Malek, Basma, Shereen Reda, Ingy El Mokadem, Huda El Mufti, and Ali Kassem.
Continuing his thriving career in film production, Mohamed Hefzy has returned to writing for the big
screen with Ras El Sana. Aside from his responsibilities as President of the Cairo International Film
Festival, Hefzy is one of the most remarkable current screenwriters in Egypt, despite his few and far
between screenwriting projects. His films garner wide audience acclaim that continues for years after
their release, including Elsellem wel te'ban, Teto, Mallaki Iskandariya, 45 Days and Aswar al-Qamar.
Ras El Sana is produced by Lagoonie Film Production and Film Clinic, distributed by New Century Production
and marketed by MAD Solutions.
