Ahram Online, Sunday 6 May 2012

On Tuesday, 8 May, the film 'Une Arme de Choix' (A Weapon of Choice) will be screened at the French Institute in Cairo, followed by a discussion with the filmmakers

Une Arme de Choix is a 43-minute documentary by Florence Tran.

Filmed between May and December 2011, the documentary brings to light differing visions and understandings of 2011's momentous events.

Une Arme de Choix presents directors Ibrahim El-Batout, Ayten Amin, Wael Omar, Khaled Abdalla, Amr Salama, Mohamed Diab and Karim El-Shenawy.

The screening of the movie will be followed by a discussion attended by film's director, Florence Tran, as well as directors Ibrahim El-Batout and Wael Omar.
