Cinema at the Museum - Death life memory fear II

Free admission

The City of the Dead (62 min.) - Sérgio Tréfaut

The City of the Dead, in Cairo, is the biggest necropolis in the world. One million inhabitants live there: in tombs or in the buildings that have grown up around the tombs. The cemetery has everything: bakeries, coffee shops, schools for the children, puppet theatres... The City of the Dead stretches along a motorway for over 10 kilometres, but it feels like a small village, with mothers wanting to marry off their daughters, boys chasing the girls around, neighbours arguing. Prepared and filmed over five years (2004-2009), this film aims to portray the invisible soul of this cemetery.
