Showing the obstacles that metal musicians face in expressing themselves publicly, the film takes on metal’s “satanic” image and its effects on the bands.

A celebration of the 1960s and 70s, Egypt’s so-called “Golden Age,” Les Petits Chats is named after one of the country’s most beloved bands, which specialized in playing Italian, French, and American music. The film follows the band in 2010 as they prepare for a reunion show in a newly constructed gated community in Cairo just before Egypt’s revolution. Hearing from band members, popular actors, and other icons from the era, Les Petits Chats captures the vibe and the drama of the 60s rock band and their legacy today.


Sherif Nakhla makes films, directs theater productions, and plays in a rock band.
