AUC is not unfamiliar with the spotlight. The American University has been part of many television and film productions before whether just by name or usage as an actual set.
Among those productions are El Gam’a (الجامعة) and Se’eedi Fel Gam’a El Amrikeya (صعيدي في الجامعة الأمريكية) and this year is no different.
Ramadan’s new series Al Moraf’a (المرافعة), starring Bassem Yakhour, has used our university in its first episode. Though it is not filmed on AUC campus, the show rather just uses the brand name and logo.
We can’t help but wonder though, how much did our beloved university charge for a couple of minutes of its name and logo on screen. Any guesses?
The scene, that depicts a graduation ceremony in January 2010, focuses on how an NDP senior member is getting a special treatment and allowed to get through the metal detector though it beeped.
What do you think of the scene? Watch it below and let us know through the comments.
