In a basement near Paris, a treasure-trove of Egyptian animated films were discovered. The films show the work of the Arab world’s pioneers in this genre, the Frenkel brothers: three exceptional young filmmakers, creators of Mish-Mish Effendi, the Arabic equivalent of Mickey Mouse. These films disappeared from Egyptian screens when the State of Israel was created. Through their animated images, we uncover the history of the Frenkel family, marked by exile and a trauma being repeated today.
