Egyptian university launches Chinese movies week


The Suez Canal University in Egypt’s Ismailia province in cooperation with China Radio International on Sunday launched a Chinese movies week themed “Eye on Contemporary China”.

The first movie that was screened at the Egyptian university was the Chinese award-winning film “Go Lala Go!” dubbed into Arabic.

The movie was greatly enjoyed by over 100 Egyptian students learning Chinese at Confucius Institute in the university.

“I would like to thank the Chinese Cultural Center that donated many books to the university, which is important for our students and for the teaching process in the university. I hope everyone enjoys the movie and understands more about China,” said Hassan Ragab, dean of Al-Alsun Faculty and executive director of Confucius Institute.

Besides the Chinese movies week, an exhibition is being held on the university campus about late renowned Chinese author and poet Guo Moruo, displaying posters in Chinese, Arabic and English about his autobiography and masterpieces.
