AfricAvenir will present the 2013 Abu Dhabi Film Festival Jury Prize Winner
"Villa 69", on Sat. 25 October 2014, 7pm, in Windhoek Namibia.

The film Villa 69, directed by first time director Ayten Amin, produced by Wael Omar and Mohamed Hefzy, starrs not only Egyptian actress super star Lebleba, but also Khaled Abol Naga, who delivers an impressively nuanced and dynamic performance.  His acting in Villa 69 confirms his reputation as one of the most charismatic Middle Eastern actors around. Not surprisingly, he won Best Male Actor at the Khouribga African Film Festival (Festival du cinéma africain de Khouribga or FCAK), 2014 for his role in Villa 69.
