2020 | Dir ZEINA DURRA | 85 mins | Egypt | UK
Andrea Riseborough floats around the Egyptian city of Luxor in this contemplative drama from British writer-director Zeina Durra about a doctor with PTSD. Hana (Riseborough) has been working in a war trauma unit along the border between Jordan and Syria, and has returned to the city to re-centre herself; by her own bleak admission she’s “seen things nobody should’ve seen”. English/Arabic with English subtitles.
