Danny Glover attends Luxor film festival, takes a quick Nile cruise

American actor Danny Glover and his wife took a short Nile cruise on Sunday as part of their whirlwind tour if Egypt on the occasion of the fifth session of the Luxor African Film Festival.

Glover flew in to Luxor International Airport on Sunday, arriving from Bulgaria, where he was shooting a film, then headed out for a trip on the Nile, starting from Luxor's West Bank. The Hollywood couple also visited several archaeological sites in the company of an official delegation from Luxor Governorate and several actors.

Joining them on the trip was Sayyed Fouad, head of the film festival, which is held between March 17 and 23. Fouad said the festival aims to bring together the perspectives of various African nations, which often face similar issues that can be discussed through the medium of film.
