Egypt nominates ‘Voy! Voy! Voy!’ for Oscars

Egypt is nominating Voy! Voy! Voy! (2023) to compete for the Academy Award for Best International Feature Film at the Oscars 2024.

The choice was made by Oscar film critic Fayza Hindawi, a member of the selection committee for film nominations to represent Egypt in the Oscar awards.

“Voy! Voy! Voy! was nominated by a majority of more than 90 percent of the votes of the committee and the audience, and an official statement will be issued regarding the vote and the films that reached the end of the nominations.” Hindawi told Al-Masry Al-Youm.

The film tells the story of Hassan, a security guard living a poor life with his mother, who finds salvation in joining a blind football team.

However, Hassan is not blind and he fraudes his way through the path to the World Cup in Europe.

The movie is based on real events, and is written and directed by Omar Hilal.

It stars a number of prominent figures in Egyptian cinema such as Mohamed Farrag, Bayoumi Fouad, Taha Desouky, and Amjad al-Haggar.

Also in the movie are Hanan Youssef, Mohamed Abdel-Azim, Haggag Abdel-Azim, and guest star Nelly Karim.
