Egypt Through The Glass Shop (Trailer)


I first met CEO of Amalgam Digital a few years ago at a music conference in Cleveland and we kept in touch off and on since. Next (@Anyextee, get it? Any-Ex-Tee, N-E-X-T...whatever, you got it. I think it's cool) is one of the people I know travels more than me and definitely handles his business (recently signing, Chuuwee).

This is his directorial debut and the film was screened at the Brooklyn HipHop Festival. From Cairo, Next "delivers a powerful first-hand account of the Egyptian Revolution--an event which provided crucial inspiration to the Occupy movement begun in New York. The film is experienced through the journey of a young entrepreneur and talented glass blower who set up a shop and, using new techniques, provides an update to the original method of glass blowing. Before long, they find themselves trapped in the country during the civil unrest that sparked the Arab Spring. After his business partner is hit in the head with a rock, the glass blower's shop falls into disarray and he finds himself displaced from the enterprise. A year later, he returns with Next to reclaim his life’s work."

This looks dope. I can't wait to see it.
