In The Last Days of the City

In The Last Days of the City is the debut feature of Egyptian director Tamer El Said and tells the fictional story of a filmmaker from downtown Cairo, played by British Egyptian actor Khalid Abdalla (The Kite Runner), as he struggles to capture the soul of a city on edge, while facing loss in his own life. Shot in Cairo, Beirut, Baghdad and Berlin during the two years before the Egyptian revolution in 2011, the film’s multi-layered stories are a visually rich exploration of friendship, loneliness, loss and life in cities shaped by the shadows of war and adversity.
