Dear Ibrahim,

I was fortunate to view "Ithaki" at the Trenton, New Jersey (USA) Artworks on 02 March 2008. Thank you for providing it to this community arts organization.

I am not a film maker, so cannot comment or appreciate enough your method of creating the film. Sounds like it was very spontaneous - which must be difficult.

Ithaki was very good at taking us into the heads of the characters. Also made me open my eyes more to "the journey."

I think foreign (to Egypt) audiences would enjoy more scenes of Cairo itself. I know this was not your objective, nor was Ithaki to be a travelogue -- but just an observation.

Thanks again for letting us view your work.
