The Mice Room

No one of us really liked that name "Seven". It was only temporal until we come up with a better name. Ahmed Magdy was suggesting "A Film About Fear" but I guess he was very influenced by the legendary filmmaker Krzysztof Kieslowski and his films "A Short Film About Love" and "A Short Film About Killing". Then two weeks ago we've decided to name our film "The Mice Room". It may sound strange but it's a very popular term in the Egyptian culture. The mice's room is always a symbol a fear for any Egyptian kid so we thought then it is the best name to describe our film that talks about fear. No one has ever seen the mice's room because simply there is no such thing in reality but every one is afraid of it. Egyptian mothers are used to frighten their kids to let them go to bed early or to eat well for example, by threatening them to be taken to the mice's room if they don't behave well or do what they are told.
