CAIRO IN ONE BREATH @ Big Sky Documentary Film Festival


With the start of the New Year, Cairo in One Breath travels to the Big Sky Documentary Film Festival, February 19-28. Join us at the screening!

As Cairo in One Breath continues to screen at festivals, we are working on the next steps!

We hope to bring the film to university libraries, and, most importantly, to your hands on DVD by the end of 2016!!! 

Thanks to everyone for your continued interest + support! Can't wait for each of you to see the film!!! We could've never done this without you, and while the process continues to reveal itself to us as we go along, we will not let you down. The film will be in your hands, we know that everything is taking longer than we imagined; first film, lots to learn. Thank you for being part of this magnificent (and not so short) process.

Happy New Year!!!

New Website, New Facebook, New Title!

Thank you all for your support and patience! Things are happening!

We are submitting to film festivals, talking to distributors, and putting the finishing touches on the film including music, color correction, sound design and credits. 

In the meantime, we have BIG NEWS: while the working title we have all known and loved for the last 5 years has been Voices and Faces of the Adhan: Cairo, the film's title was always due to change. We have chosen Cairo in One Breath as the film's official title and we hope that you're as delighted by this as we are. In honor of the new title and being close to completion, we have updated the trailer, the Facebook page, and have created a new website for On Look Films. We hope you like all of the new and updated material we've created and that you are as excited as we are about the forthcoming film!

Sneak Peek & Newsletter!


First Snow in Egypt in 100 Years!  

Some things are hard to believe! For example, the snow in Egypt. And also, we are almost done with the film! Other things that are hard to believe don't quite make us smile, yet we hope that the difficult times in the region end soon, and that the hope that continues to fill the hearts of the people is the force that wins, that supersedes all struggle!!! We hope that we can make a contribution through our work towards peace.

Thank you all for your support with the film over the years. With 2013 coming to a close, we are happy to report that we are reaching fine cut! While this means that we are almost done, it also means that we are a little behind what we projected over a year ago during our Kickstarter campaign, which was also our last fundraiser.  

2013 has been a crucial year in moving this project forward and as you know, without your involvement, none of this would be possible. As we are nearing the finish line, we are excited to share with you a clip from the beginning of the film. Keep an eye out for the last few seconds featuring the latest prototyped sound map of Cairo! And if you haven't seen what we were up to in April at Hot Docs, check out the prototypes we developed for the interactive web component of the film with The Secret Location as part of HotHacks 2013. Use Google Chrome browser to view the prototype here.  

Once we reach fine cut, there is still a bit of work to do! The film will get subtitled, color corrected, and an original score will be written. It's a process, but now we are reaching its end and we can't wait to share the magical results with you! If you are looking for a way to make an end of year tax deductible contribution, please remember On Look Films.

We will send updates as we go, sorry if we are out of touch for too long, we promise the snow didn't win, we are trudging along!  

Please stay warm this winter and hug those loved ones if you are lucky enough to have them near. We wish you the Happiest of New Years Celebrations and best of luck in 2014. May this year end with increased peace in the world.
