The Ghost of Tutankhamun

The Ghost of Tutankhamun unravels the relationship between the production of cinema and the production of the modern nation-state in Egypt. The story of the origin of cinema is a colonial one, its perpetuation a neo-colonial one, leading this project to marginal narratives outside the visual archives, culminating in an improvised concert and the echoes of peasant resistance.
