From Ekhteyar to Godfather 2: Cinematology continues to offer free cinema crash courses

Ahram Online , Sunday 31 May 2020

The two latest entries offered by Cinematology provide a short analysis of The Godfather 2 and the Egyptian television series Ekhteyar


Cinematology is a well-established film appreciation platform that operates through its Facebook page and YouTube channel.

The most recent video uploaded by the platform yesterday offers an analysis of Francis Ford Coppola's The Godfather 2.

Just like in many previous videos, Cinematology gives a glimpse into the film's topic while analysing its execution. In a few minutes, the viewer is offered a mini-lecture that highlights the values of the film.

The same applies to many other videos release by Cinematology over the past few years, with an increased number of posts during the pandemic to provide valuable entertainment for the viewers at home.

For instance, on 22 May, Cinematology posted an analysis of the Ramadan television series Ekhteyar (The Choice), taking the episode 28 as a point of departure.

Cinematology’s videos are presented in a light manner and tackle different topics, like frame composition, visual motifs and the cinema of youth.

Founded by Mohamed Abou Soliman in 2015, Cinematology was born with the hope of reviving the great works of Egyptian cinema and encouraging people to appreciate the intricate details of filmmaking.

Some videos present acting classes based on the presentation of well-known actors' techniques. Other entries educate the viewers in the history of cinema, genre analysis, etc.

All videos are in Arabic.

Over the past few years, the platform has grown remarkably, attracting over 180,000 followers to its Facebook page and almost 47,000 subscribers on its YouTube channel.
