Egypt/2017/106mins/ctba/subs Dir: Tarik Saleh. With Fares Fares.
Weeks before the 2011 Egyptian revolution, Noredin, a police officer in Cairo's corrupt system, investigates the murder of a famous club singer at the Nile Hilton Hotel. What initially seems to be a crime of passion turns into something that concerns the very power elite of Egypt. Upon realising this, Noredin decides to break the rules in order to obtain justice, colliding not only with the system but also with himself. This tense political thriller is based on a true story and one of the first films to deal with the after effects of the Arab Spring.
