Last Tape

Director: Hani Sami
Highlights Highlights Highlights
Inspired by Samuel Beckett’s Krapp’s Last Tape, the film tells a story of an epic and poetic failure.
The protagonist is afraid of venturing into life. He stays on its periphery, sheltered in pseudo-philosophy and empty rationalization, dreaming of doing great deeds instead of taking concrete steps towards it.
The film received the FSDIE - Université Toulouse II - Jean Jaurès Production fund, France and the El Nahda Cultural Association in Cairo Production Fund, Egypt.

Al Shareet Al Akheer
Alone in his room, the old man listens to long forgotten memories and recalls his past loves. When he stumbles upon her story, his frail reality disintegrates, and the memory of a distant past surfaces and becomes his present tense.
