About the Film

When British aid worker Hana returns to the ancient city of Luxor, she comes across Sultan, an archeologist and former lover. As she wanders, haunted by the familiar place, she struggles to reconcile the choices of the past with the uncertainty of the present.


Press

"The film plays with the headiness of the ancient past, so vivid in Luxor and environs, using it as a counterbalance to the oppressiveness of Hana’s barely spoken trauma. What’s ancient offers succor, a recognition of something greater than ourselves, something mystical." –Jay Weissberg, Variety

"As with her debut film, ‘The Imperialists are Still Alive!’, Durra's dialogue tries to reflect the reality of middle-class lives, and also the search for deeper meaning in life." –Kaleem Aftab, Cineuropa
