On January 30, 2023, at the Russian Center for Science and Culture in Cairo, as part of the "Art Unites" film festival during the Days of the Eurasian Peoples' Assembly in Egypt screened the film "Nartai" (Kazakhstan).

The organizers of the screening are the Eurasian Peoples' Assembly, the Russian Center for Science and Culture in Cairo and the Peace and Harmony Charitable Foundation.

Before the screning, Marat Gatin, the Representative of the Embassy of the Republic of Kazakhstan in Egypt and the Head of the Russian Center for Science and Culture in Cairo, addressed the audience with a welcoming speech. From the Eurasian Peoples' Assembly, the Award  "Art Unites" was given the Head to transfer it to the creative team of the film.

The chain of events of the film "Nartai" takes place in Germany and Kazakhstan in 1991. By a combination of unfavorable circumstances, Edik Petrov, a Russian tightrope walker who dreams of living in Germany, hijacks a T-72 tank heading to the USSR as part of the Western Group of Forces, along with its driver, senior sergeant Nartai Sapargaliev. Nartai really wants to go home. While the command is thinking about how to get him out of Bavaria, Nartai is not sitting idle. Bright and eccentric, he makes friends in a foreign land and now and then helps everyone who crosses his path. Three strangers met and became family forever. Three destinies, three love stories, three homelands… or one for all three?

The screening was attended by representatives of the Kazakh diaspora in Egypt, who received the film very warmly.
