CGiii Comment

It would seem that this film has been practically ignored, disregarded...binned even.

There is a reason...amid allegations of sexual harassment and inappropriate conduct, Mr Kojak fled his country...leaving, in his wake, this [what would seem] unfinished film.

It's only 58 minutes long...58 minutes is long enough to spend in the company of this devout narcissist.

The film is a scrappily made document that focusses on him and his ever-present ego rather than on the clothes and the design process. There's a reason...the clothes are a mixture of early Gaultier and Westwood inspired 're-imaginings'...with the imagery being a substandard rip-off of Pierre et Gilles...in other words, nothing original...especially, to those who know a thing or two about fashion.

For the less well-versed, he probably impresses...with his enfant terrible dilettantism. But...the feathers he may have ruffled - in his short career - have all been preened...as, it would seem, remaining silent over the accusations, he has been duly cancelled...by himself and everyone else!

Good luck with the film's distribution...no-one is going to touch it!

Zip It exposes the challenges a creative and eccentric young man can face in a society where anything unconventional is controversial. Following the out-of-the-ordinary yet ordinary life of Egyptian "fashion designer of the moment" Mohanad Kojak, the film shows the resilience it takes to be successful in today's Cairo.
