Join us for a special Q&A event with the British filmmaker Zeina Durra, who will discuss her new feature film, LUXOR, starring Andrea Riseborough and Karim Saleh.

Set against the backdrop of the ancient Egyptian city of Luxor, the film centres on Hana, a doctor and British aid worker seeking mental peace and physical respite after an overwhelming period spent working at a clinic in Ramtha, on the Jordanian-Syrian border, where she specialised in treating victims wounded in the war in Syria. She finds solace in Luxor, where she lived in her 20s and dated an archeologist, Sultan, who was also studying there.

As she wanders, haunted by the familiar place, Hana struggles to reconcile the choices of the past with the uncertainty of the present. She lingers through memory-filled hotel lobbies and ancient sites as she begins to grapple with her grief and her emotions from the war—but when she runs into Sultan on a ferry crossing unexpectedly, the chemistry is undeniable.

The city of Luxor serves not only as the film’s setting but also as a point of remembrance and as an ode to the past, as Luxor honours the belief in energies, timing, and the magic of second chances. Says Durra of making the film on location: “In Luxor you can almost hear the temple walls talk because people prayed there for thousands of years, which makes it the perfect setting for a film about birth and rebirth and second chances.”

For this free event, Treadwells founder and director Christina Harrington will be in conversation with Zeina Durra about making the film on location in the incredible ancient Egyptian city of Luxor.

We encourage you to watch the film online at modernfilms.com in advance of joining the event on 23 November. It will be available to watch on demand from 6 November at the price of £9.99.
