Kiss Me Not

Film Screening

“Kiss Me Not” tracks the rise and fall of the kiss in Egyptian cinema in a comedy that blurs the line between documentary and fiction. The film follows Fajr, a famous female sex symbol and the leading actress in the feature film directorial debut of a young director. She refuses to shoot a kissing scene in the film, which drives the director crazy and annoys the producer. They all try to reach a middle-ground to get out of this quandary and complete the film.
