In a basement near Paris, unearth a recently discovered treasure-trove of Egyptian animated films from the Frenkel brothers: three exceptional young filmmakers and creators of Mish-Mish Effendi, the Mickey Mouse of the entire region, revealing an Arab-Jewish golden age erased from the pages of history.
"Captivating, charming and touching... There's a certain energy around the (Frenkel) brothers that feels like the original Disney equation - the children of Russian Jewish migrants who somehow cobbled together the beginning of an animation studio in Egypt." - The Austin Chronicle
