Guests of honor Coup de cœur

The Austrian doctor Martin Boltrum dedicated his life to find new ways of treatment, before discovering that the Cinema is the best treatment to heal the injuries and the agonies of the humanity, to answer the outstanding questions, or to ask new necessary questions, sometimes, and to continue enjoying life. And for that, Boltrum changed his clinic to a movie theater and started projecting films every day. This doctor reminds us of the Egyptian actor Karim Abdel Aziz, in the film “The blue elephant’”, where he plays the role of the doctor “Yahya Rached”. Karim Abdel Aziz, in all his films, since his childhood, has this magic ability to awaken and to purify our feelings, to ingeniously subdue our emotions, strengthening our spirits, and making us falling in love with life. Long time ago, a doctor was called a magician, we can call him an actor nowadays.  ...
