A short time ago, a symposium honoring the artist Khaled El-Sawy began within the activities of the Alexandria Film Festival for Mediterranean Countries in its 37th session, with a documentary film that dealt with the artistic life of the artist Khaled El-Sawy, and the artist Elham Shaheen was keen to attend and participate in the symposium.
The artist Khaled El-Sawy said: “I am very grateful to everyone who took an interest in coming to the symposium, and thank you for the festival management. The best feeling is that the soul of the child is inside.”
