EXCLUSIVE: Here’s the first trailer for Luxor, Zeina Durra’s warmly reviewed second feature that recently premiered in Sundance’s World Cinema Dramatic Competition.
Andrea Riseborough leads the film as British aid worker Hana, who returns to the ancient city of Luxor, Egypt, and comes across Sultan (Karim Saleh), a talented archeologist and former lover.
Durra’s feature debut was 2010’s The Imperialists Are Still Alive!, which also bowed at Sundance.
Paris-based Totem Films is handling international sales on Luxor. CAA Media Finance is repping North American rights. As previously announced, Front Row will distribute in the Middle East and North Africa.
The film was produced by Durra, with Mohamed Hefzy through his production company Film Clinic, Mamdouh Saba, and Gianluca Chakra of Front Row. Paul Webster and Front Row’s Hisham Al Ghanim are executive producing; Daniel Ziskind of Film Clinic and Ihab Ayoub are serving as associate producers.
