The Egyptian director Tamer El Said was born in 1972 in Cairo, where he studied film at the High Cinema Institute and then journalism at Cairo University. He has been making short films and documentaries since the mid-1990s. In order to be able to realise his independent film projects, he set up his own production company, Zero Production, in 2007. He then co-founded a “cinematheque” as an “alternative film centre for Egypt” to ensure that the films made it onto cinema screens. He spent nine years working on his debut full-length feature film AKHER AYAM EL MADINA (IN THE LAST DAYS OF THE CITY), because he wanted to do justice to his city and its inhabitants: “Cairo is one of the most photogenic cities in the world. It has this amazing mixture of tenderness and harshness. I wanted to try and learn how to reflect and create the experience of Cairo on screen, to show the pulse of the street, the pulse of the people.”
