The Fuul and Ta’miya sandwiches will be catered by L’Oriental-Gourmet Egyptian Halal Catering.
Asmaa is a 2011 Egyptian drama film directed by Amr Salama, starring Hind Sabry, Hany Adel and Maged El Kedwany. The movie is based on the true story of a woman who died from a burst gall badder after doctors refused to operate on her because she had AIDS. The film sheds light on the misconceptions and lies surrounding AIDS through the story of a woman who struggles to live under the burden of keeping her HIV status secret.
The film premiered at the 2011 Abu Dhabi Film Festival, where it won the “New Horizons Award” for Best Director from the Arab World, Amr Salama and Best Actor, Maged el Kedwany. The film was also awarded the “Audience Award” in the 2012 Fribourg International Film Festival.
