ARABIE SAOUDITE

Synopsis

Upon receiving news that his ailing father is nearing death, Nasser, who left his native village decades ago to establish himself in the Saudi capital city of Riyadh, decides to drive home for one last visit, accompanied by his sixteen-year old son Waleed. Imbued with unspoken disavowal and disapproval, this intergenerational relationship incarnates the deep rift that alienates Saudi men – the fathers upholding stern, antiquated patriarchal customs, the sons aspiring for emancipation – as well as the rural-urban divide of contemporary Saudi society. Last Visit is a starkly profound, boldly authentic, and impressively adroit first feature that combines the talents of an underground community of cinephiles, and potentially heralds a wave of independent-minded filmmaking in Saudi Arabia.
