SIFF 2014

When we received the e-mail confirming that The Mice Room or "O Quarto dos Ratos" in Portuguese will be screened in the prestigious São Paulo International Film Festival, we were really overwhelmed. For us it was such a great opportunity to screen the film in a festival with many great filmmakers from all over the world. The film was screened four times in the official competition of the festival's 38th edition. It was screend on: Oct. 16th, Oct. 17th, 18th and 20th.

Again, not all of us could travel to Brazil to attend the festival. Despite it was Mayye, Zedan & Nermeen's turn to travel, Magdy was the only available one to go on that trip. And this time we were supported by the Egyptian Ministry of Culture who covered Magdy's travel expenses.

Interview with Samir Nabil

Samir Nabil or Object Obscure as he calls himself, is the sound designer and mixer of the film. He is one of the film's greatest supporters. In his studio Badroom, we spent many months editing the film and working on sound, before moving to Rufy's new place. Here in this interview he talks about his work in films in general as a music composer and a sound designer. He talks about his studio Badroom, where all the film's dubbing process, sound mixing and design happened.
