Director’s Statement:

The sporadic accelerated of random vertical expansion in Agami is a microcosm of what’s happening in Egypt. We cannot keep at this consistent and persistent trail of destruction and tasteless development and construction without having proper vision that translates to sustainable design, and this all cannot see the light of day without adequate implementation of law applied equally and fairly on all… This video is a cry for help from those in positions of authority or power to see the human side of the story that is generally disregarded in the bigger scheme of things. Mohamed Tayef, is a poet who has spent all his childhood in Agami, a coastal town near the city of Alexandria, and still lives there. A banter between the shocking present and the nostalgic past leaves us with a sense of shame and really spearheads the emotional and human aspect being destructed and withered away.
