In Ahmad Abdalla’s award-winning indie film MICROPHONE, Khaled (played by UN ambassador and “Dream Deferred” essay contest judge Khaled Abol Naga) returns to Alexandria after years of travel to find his relationships in disrepair. While roaming the city consumed with pain, he stumbles upon an underground art scene: hip-hop singers riffing on sidewalks, female rockers jamming on rooftops, and skateboarders cruising the seaside city. Released last year, MICROPHONE foreshadows the forces that burst forth across Egypt just a few months later.
