British aid worker Hana (Andrea Riseborough) is seeking respite after an overwhelming period spent working at a clinic on the harrowing Syrian border, where she specialised in treating victims wounded in the war. She returns to the ancient and majestic city of Luxor, where she lived as a young adult, and encounters Sultan (Karim Saleh), a talented archaeologist and former lover. As she wanders, haunted by the familiar place, she struggles to reconcile the choices of the past with the uncertainty of the present. A full decade after her debut, The Imperialists Are Still Alive!, Zeina Durra returns with this restrained story of romance post-trauma, which premiered at Sundance Film Festival 2020.
