Netflix And Ramadan: New Arabic Shows Coming Up

Published

on

Netflix invited us to its special Ramadan exclusive session in Dubai.

We got so indulged in Netflix that we didn’t want to go back to the real world. With the holy month coming up in two weeks, Netflix gave us a sneak peck to its special Ramadan schedule and we can’t wait to binge watch all these new shows.

While we wish we could Netflix for the rest of our lives; our habits change somehow in Ramadan. Statistics show that in Ramadan, we tend to believe that we have two or three extra free hours compared to the rest of they, and people reported that they usually use this extra time to watch TV series and movies (more Netflix!).

Lucky for us, we get to work fewer hours in Ramadan, which gives us at least additional three hours during the day, that we can definitely use to catch up with all the shows we have been saving for later

With an average bed time between 2 to 5 am, Netflix is adding a bunch of new cool shows, and this time in Arabic. From documentaries to movies, Netflix is giving us a new experience. The news shows include the Egyptian series “The secret of the Nile”, a film tour on the Egyptian/American stand up comedian, Ahmed Ahmed, and a documentary called “Speed Sisters” that is about the Arab world’s first all-woman race car team.

Check out the new shows Coming to Netflix:

Make sure to catch up with all the new shows and tell us about your favorites!

 

Happy Ramdan

The Egyptian Film “Photocopy” made it to London and is set to screen on the 13th of December, the movie was first premiered at the Gouna Film Festival and was awarded the Golden Star for Best Arabic Feature Narrative Film. 

The film is written by Haitham Dabbour, directed by Tamer Ashry and starred Mahmoud Hemeida, Sherine Reda, Farah Youssef, Aly Tayeb and Ahmed Dash, among others.

The plot revolves around an elder man who led a normal life as a data-entry typist in a governmental job and was never married. When he decides to retire early and opens a photocopy shop, his life takes a new turn and he manages to change the depressing reality of his lifestyle. 

Dabbour explains that the movie tackles issues that concern the elderly and thus opening new topics that were portrayed in the Egyptian cinema, he also added that it was challenging for him to try and maintain high artistic sides and still make it entertaining for the audience. But it’s fair to say that he successfully achieved that; seeing how the script got nominated for the Sawiris Cultural Awards, and it should be praised for he has been working on it since 2013. 

Hopefully the film can create more hits during its screening in London and generate more admiration not only to the script, but to the overall work of the crew that will reflect the Egyptian creativity in filmmaking.

He also added: “That’s something we tried to get move for move, even just gesture for gesture perfectly.

“It felt like I had it in my bones and I didn’t want to keep going back to it. It felt like sometimes you would lose a little bit of the authenticity if you tried to nail it so perfectly.” Rami Malek is nominated along with other outstanding celebrities, Bradley Cooper in A Star Is Born, Willem Dafoe in At Eternity’s Gate, Lucas Hedges in Boy Erased and John David Washington in BlacKkKlansman.
