On a star-studded night, Ras El Sana film by director Sakr premiered on Tuesday, February 4, at Zamalek Cinema.
The premiere night witnessed a massive attendance by public figures, A-list stars, and media outlets, including the film’s screenwriter/producer Mohamed Hefzy, director Sakr, founder and CEO of Lagoonie Film Production, Shahinaz El-Akkad, along with actors and actresses Basma, Hesham El shazly, Mahmoud El Lozy, Sally Abed, Jihane Khalil and Mohamed El Alfy.
Released by Film Clinic and Lagoonie Film Production in Egyptian theaters, Ras El Sana will be released in further Arab countries soon.

Ras El Sana takes place over the course of one night in a coastal resort town where the crème de la crème celebrates the New Year in 2009. As the celebrations are underway, relationships grow more complex, and secrets are uncovered, changing the way they see themselves and those around them forever.

Ras El Sana is director Sakr’s directorial debut. The film stars Eyad Nassar, Ahmed Malek, Ali Kassem, Shereen Reda, Basma, and Ingy El Mokadem.
