Together with Arab Film Festival and Ultrasound Bookings we are showing this award-winning documentary from Sherief Elkatsha, following 12 African musicians from seven countries along the Nile River as they band together in an international coalition to highlight the water conflict along the river they share. As they leave their homes in Egypt, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Sudan, Kenya, Burundi, and Uganda and embark on a 100-day tour of America’s heartland, the film captures the challenges of collaboration across cultural lines. Despite their vast cultural differences, musical styles, and competing egos, the artists must find ways to create and remain united in their cause. After the film there's a video interview with director Sherief Elkatsha.

Featuring the Nile Project Musicians: Mohamed Abozekry (Egypt), Michael Bazibu (Uganda), Nader Elshaer (Egypt), Ibrahim Fanous (Eritrea), Saleeb Fawzy (Upper Egypt), Asia Madani (Sudan), Adel Mekha (Nubia), Kasiva Mutua (Kenya), Ahmed Omar (Eritrea, Ethiopia), Dave Otieno (Kenya), Steven Sogo (Burundi), Selamnesh Zemene (Ethiopia).
