October 11 @ 7pm @ UnionDocs: Join us for a screening of In the Last Days of the City! A conversation with filmmaker Tamer El Said and writer/critic Kaelen Wilson-Goldie will follow the film screening. Tamer El Said’s ambitious debut feature tells the fictional story of a filmmaker from downtown Cairo played by Khalid Abdalla (The Kite Runner, United 93, Green Zone, The Square) as he struggles to capture the sou 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 outbreak of revolution in Egypt, the film’s multi-layered stories are a visually rich exploration of friendship, loneliness and life in cities shaped by the shadows of war and adversity.
