Advisory: SOME COARSE LANGUAGE 些许粗俗语言Director: Tamer El SaidDuration: 118Language: Arabic with English subtitles

A filmmaker from Cairo struggles to capture the soul of a city on edge while facing loss in his own life. Shot in Cairo, Beirut, Baghdad and Berlin during the two years before the outbreak of revolution in Egypt, the film’s multi-layered stories are a visually rich exploration of friendship, loneliness and life in cities shaped by the shadows of war and adversity.
