Salim Amin, son of Mohamed, and Chairman of A24 MEDIA has made an award-winning film on his father's life, "Mo & Me", winning prizes at 19 different film festivals.  He is currently working on a feature film on the same subject.  He said, "This year, Camerapix celebrates its 50th Anniversary.  We have been a part of Africa's triumphs and tragedies, successes and failures.  My father's story is the story of Africa - rising up against the odds and taking its rightful position amongst the best in the world. We could think of no better way to commemorate our anniversary than with the re-publishing of his biographies as e-books to symbolise the technological advancement that continues to uplift our Continent. A good story is timeless, no matter what media platform it is told on.  His story will live through the ages on every format."
