In the Last Days of the City
In downtown Cairo in 2009, Khalid, a 35-year-old filmmaker struggles to make a film that captures the soul of his city while facing loss in his own life. With the help of his friends who send him footage from their lives in Beirut, Baghdad and Berlin, he finds the strength to keep going through the difficulty and beauty of living in Cairo.
- "Without doubt, the most important film in Egyptian cinema, if not Arab cinema, in a very long time."
- ""In the Last Days of the City" is an elegy, a melancholic love-hate poem to Cairo and the role of filmmakers in any city in pain."
- "[T]his is a film of beauty and skill."
