Venice to pay tribute to Chahine

'Cairo Station' to be screened on Lido

The Venice Film Festival is dedicating its 65th edition to the late Egyptian helmer Youssef Chahine, who will also be remembered with a screening of his 1958 classic “Cairo Station.”

“Without him, cinema from ‘the rest of the world’ is poorer,” said Venice topper Marco Mueller.

A Lido regular, Chahine was in Venice last year with his last film “Chaos,” a subversive social comedy. Several earlier works of his unspooled at Venice where Chahine served on the jury in 1980.

“Cairo Station,” a sensual film noir in which Chahine also stars, will screen Aug. 31 in the Sala Grande at midnight. The fest runs Aug. 27-Sept. 6.
