The AFAC supported film "In the Last Days of the City" narrates the story of Khalid, a filmmaker struggling to make a film that captures the soul of a city that is no longer what it used to be, while facing potential eviction from his house and problems with the woman he loves. He wishes to leave and flee the city, but when he reaches his friends in other Arab capitals such as Beirut or Baghdad, he realises than they their condition is not better than his.

 

El Said's film received the Caligari Film Prize; the Best Director award at Buenos Aires International Festival of Independent Cinema (BAFICI), and the Grand Prix of the New Horizons Film Festival in Wroclaw (Poland).
