LAAF 2017 Programme

Clash (15)

The Box at FACT  |  £8/£5 for members

Director: Mohamed Diab.

Arabic with English subtitles.

Egypt’s turbulent recent social upheavals, which saw Hosni Mubarak’s decades-long rule come to an end in a people-led revolution in 2011, is the focus of Mohamed Diab’s gripping new film, Clash. Set almost entirely within the confines of a police truck, Clash is claustrophobic, hard-hitting and fuelled by an ambitious scope that belies its minimal setting.

 Winner of Best Director and Best Screenplay at Arab Critics Awards at Cannes Film Festival 2017.
