Clash (adv15)

Egypt/2016/97mins/adv15/subtitles. Dir: Mohamed Diab With: Nelly Karim, Hany Adel, Tarek Abdel Aziz

On a street in Egypt both supporters of the Morsi government and anti-Morsi protestors are out on the streets demonstrating. In the chaos innocent bystanders, journalists, and fierce political rivals are rounded up and thrown in the back of a truck. Tensions run high as they await their fate during a long hot day locked together. As riots explode around them we feel their claustrophobia, anger, fear, horror, despair, and glimmers of hope.

"Refreshingly, and vitally, the film doesn't choose a side. Instead it shows us a group of people forced into factions by circumstance or lineage, unwilling to back down."
