About the film

Dir. Mohamed Diab/ Cert. 15

In Arabic with English sub-titles

It is set just after the political events of June 2013 in Egypt, when the army has just unseated Mohamed Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood, and pro-army and pro-Muslim Brotherhood factions are clashing on the street. A reporter and photographer are arrested and thrown into the back of a police van, which is the sole camera setting of the film. Soon, other demonstrators from both sides are thrown in. In the next few hours they get glimpses of the turmoil on the streets.

The film was officially selected for the Cannes Film Festival and was the Egyptian entry for the best Foreign Language film at the 2016 Academy Awards.

The film will be remembered as one of the most telling depictions of Egypt yet filmed   Deborah Young The Hollywood Reporter

If there’s any way you can see Clash by Egyptian director Mohamed Diab you must. You simply must. The film will break your heart but enlighten all  Tom Hanks!
