Chahine To Be Honoured At Venice Film Festival
Late moviemaker YOUSSEF CHAHINE will be remembered at the upcoming Venice Film Festival in Italy - this year's event has been dedicated to him.
The revered Egyptian director died in July (08), aged 82.
Chahine has been a regular at the film festival - his 9/11 movie, 11'09'01 - September 11, picked up the UNESCO Award for best film in 2002 and his drama Chaos was among the movies in competition last year (07).
Chahine's 1958 film Cairo Station, in which he also starred, will be screened during the festival, which begins next week (27Aug08).
