  • Domestic Tourism II

    2009. Egypt. Directed by Maha Maamoun. Exclusively utilizing footage from other Egyptian films that use the pyramids as backdrop, Domestic Tourism II explores the ways in which these iconic historical monuments can be reappropriated from the “timelessness” of the tourist postcard and reinscribed into the complex political, social, and historical moment in urban narratives. In Arabic; English subtitles. 62 min.
