Alexandria Trilogy: Alexandria Again & Forever

From Sun 24 Sep to Tue 03 Oct

Now an ageing director, Yehia becomes infatuated with star actor Amr, which threatens to damage their professional relationship and fuel his depression and writer’s block. But a fateful meeting during the 1986 filmmaker strike fires Yehia’s imagination. The final part of the Alexandria trilogy is a characteristically rowdy ride, full of longing, dance, and the trials and pleasures of artistic collaboration.
