Storyline

The directing debut of Atef Ben Bouzid, Cairo Jazzman, a political music documentary set in the heart of the Arab world, tells the engaging story of the critically acclaimed Cairo Jazz Festival and its founder Amr Salah. Dedicated to the Egyptian people, the film captures rarely seen facets of civil society and everyday life in Cairo. It provides a rare inside look and captures the struggles and obstacles Egyptians, especially the young, are facing. Operating on a non-profit-basis and with limited funding sources, the Cairo Jazz Festival has grown into a unique platform bringing together local and international musicians who are united in their love for jazz and their desire to share, cultivate, and pass it to the next generation. Amr Salah is Cairo Jazzman.

Quotes

Amr Salah: Cairo is a crazy city. To put it in jazz terms, this is avant-garde. This is modern, weird jazz.
Amr Salah: It's hard to get inspired by a surrounding like this. But in the end, Cairo has the rhythm.
