Aya Zakaria graduated last year from Egypt's Helwan University, her film Swing acting in no small way as an antidote to those dreadfully mischievous French students a day or so ago. A little girl ventures onto one of those boat-like swings and is transported rather more spectacularly than she had intended .... onto, and very nearly into, an ocean where pirates cascade cannon balls down upon her. But not before she has enjoyed flying fish and whale. Aya majored in book design and animation and I can just see her artwork translated into one of those glorious children's books I read to the kids, where the drawings are clear-cut and story gentle. I provide all the voices. One for the kids and me!
