Sherif El-Azma lives and works in Cairo. He is an experimental film-maker and video artist. In his works he uses the narrative strategies of cinema and media semiotics to re-question human experience. Since 1997, his work has been shown in major art institutions including the Martin-Gropius-Bau in Berlin, Camden Art Centre in London, Townhouse Gallery in Cairo, Madre Museum in Naples and the National Film Theatre in London. El-Azma is currently working on projects that involve a more classical narrative film form.
