Close to Home - Al Khimyah

Close to Home: Al-Khimyah

The second film in the Close to Home series, written and directed by Prince Aly Muhammad, explores the work of the Aga Khan Trust for Culture (AKTC) in Cairo, Egypt. The film is an account of a city whose foundations were laid over a thousand years ago, which has seen a 500-year-old rubbish dump rebuilt into a lush green oasis, and a poor inner-city district transformed into a thriving community.
