An extraordinary country cinema was captured deep in Sinai Dessert, Egypt by Estonian photographer Kaupo Kikkas. According to Kikkas “a crazy frenchman found himself in the desert of Sinai. After some puffs of a magic smoke he wondered – how come that there are no cinemas in the middle of the desert? He flew back to Paris and arranged some money. After that he went to Cairo to buy original old seats and projection equipment from an old cinema theatre. Then came back to Sinai, arranged generator for electricity a monsterous tractor to pull up the screen that was like a gigantic sail. And now everything was more or less ready for the premier.  Only detail he forgot was that this nice desert happens to be in Egypt. Country where local authorities are not too happy about such enthusiasm and spirit, specially if it comes from a crazy frenchmen”. Story’s evolution is quite obvious, this movie theater is nothing but abbandoned, a lonely piece of art in the middle of the nowhere. But this is how art is rolling, it can be found in the weirdest of places.
