Cairo Cinema Days
One Plus One Makes a Pharaoh’s Chocolate Cake documents the process of a week of meetings in Cairo between musicians Aïsha Devi from Switzerland and Islam Chipsy as they were asked to produce a collaborative music track. Shot on a VHS camera, the experimental, performative project takes us into the difficulties of artistic collaboration and questions whether anything is ever actually exchanged within so-called cultural exchange.
