While staying at the empty Sheraton in CAIRO, with my POLISH team, we experienced a wonderful and surrealist adventure :-) I decided to draw all the great stories I heard from my Egyptian film crew! I went to direct a musical commercial for a local dairy product I had won before the revolution. Against all advices from Europe and all embassies, I decided to go ahead and shoot it. There were tanks everywhere, and a curfew at night, but otherwise we felt safe. The Egyptians I met were so enthusiastic and full of hope for the future they had fought for so bravely. They were of course so happy we had decided to come and work with them in such uncertain times. If we had not come, the shoot would have been canceled, meaning no salaries.....Of course lots of worries and trouble lie ahead, but the fact that today, sits in jail , some of the most powerful and richest men in Egypt, shows, that the tide has turned! It´s important that Europeans and foreign business, resume their obligations to this New Egypt. Lets help them creating the EGYPT they wish to have, a fair and peaceful place, where every voice counts and where every man and woman, finds his / her dignity..
