SKYPE WITH DIRECTOR
Police in Tahrir Square arrest and lock up a group of Muslim Brotherhood government supporters along with anti-regime demonstrators. This hard-hitting drama from Mohamed Diab (Cairo 678 - ANA 2012) is filmed entirely inside the paddy wagon where the opposing protestors are confined in all-too-close proximity. It’s “a rather amazing New Wave–style drama that combines claustrophobic intimacy with some logistically epic scene-setting” (Guardian)—a stunning, bravura piece of filmmaking.
