In 2009, inside the old city of Cairo, the life of Khalid, the young director, is about to take new turns. He has hopes of making a film about the city, and the dreams he has been carrying inside, while he dreadfully anticipates being expelled from his apartment. The woman he loves wants to immigrate outside Egypt; while all the time, he carries in his heart sweet memories of his childhood when Cairo was a brighter place.

The film Directed by:
Tamer El-Said (Director) and Mustafa Youssef (Assistant Director)
Scriptwriter: Rasha Salti (Screenplay and Dialogue)
Tamer El Said (Screenplay & Dialogue)
Staff: Khaled Abdullah, Mariam Saleh, Ali Subhi, Hanan Youssef, Haidar Helou, Laila Sami

El-Said started preparing for his first feature film that he named “The Sadness” in 2008. He later changed the name to be “In the Last Days of The City”. He filmed and wrote the film for two full years, and the work came to an end eight months before the January 25th Revolution. The film depicts the story of Khaled El-Said, the young director who lives through Cairo's transformations and charm, charm that was overshadowed by repression, ignorance and extremism.

Tamer El-Said is an independent director, writer and film producer. He was born on August 14th, 1972 in Cairo. El-Said studied journalism at Cairo University, and directed his film at the Higher Institute of Cinema.
