Ahdaf Soueif, writer and British Museum Trustee, introduces two short films, Sound from the Hallways(2012, 25 mins) and Two Faces in the Landscape (2000, 15 mins), that probe familiar narratives of Egyptian culture and history.

The screenings will be followed by a discussion with the filmmakers of Sound from the Hallways, Lasse Lau and Mostafa Youssef, who reflect on their atmospheric tour of the Egyptian Museum in Cairo and how the their artistic decisions enable new realities to overlay the narrative of the grand halls of history.
