The Last of Us
N. travels from Sub-Saharan Africa through the desert and then by boat to Europe, only to end up stranded in a mysterious forest and be confronted by a silent old man. Both contemporary and surreal, Ala Eddine Slim’s film explores the boundaries of man, country, nature and cinema.
This hypnotic, largely silent diptych brings together an army deserter and a rich man’s pregnant wife in the Tunisian woods.
