"Last Call for Nefertiti, beauty like you've never known,
Last Call, she's got it all, enigma, charisma..."
As the centenary of the discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun approaches two Egyptologists are in the news suggesting theories of a new discovery - the final resting place of the most beautiful woman of the ancient world, Queen Nefertiti.
Casson & The Brannick Academy were with one of them, Professor Nicholas Reeves when he first began his quest to find her tomb 30 years ago. Last Call for Nefertiti captures the intrepid spirit of discovery as this story unfolds.

Wonderful. The recollections and archival footage... (are) informative and engaging, particularly the video footage during the expedition seeing it all at first hand as they search for their goal...The music is witty.

It is very bold and inventive and... slightly mad. It does have
a creative brio which is very infectious... very original work
It's clear the passion with which it has been made has led to an individual and unique film
