VIFF 1st movie amazing - Microphone

Cinema of Our Time
(Egypt, 2010, 120 mins, 35mm)
Directed By: Ahmad Abdalla
I had the great pleasure to see the film Microphone. It was directed by Ahmad Abdalla who was on hand for a Q&A after the Sunday 11:40 AM showing. The sound track was amazing. Ahmad said that all of the underground bands in the film are real bands in Alexandra and the music was not written for this movie, it is their music. A CD of the music will be coming out in Jan 2011. The movie was finished just in time for TIFF in T.O. and It was shot with a Canon EOS 7D, in Full HD 1080p at 24 frames per second. (thanks North Shore News John Goodman for that detail.)
Here are some links to the music and you can explore. I do not own any rights to these links and am posting for entertaiment and education, enjoy.
This is a photo that I took of the Director. Ahmad Abdalla taken at the Q&A.
