This gripping, modern day noir thriller is set amid the unrest in Cairo weeks before the 2011 Egyptian revolution. Noredin (Fares Fares, The Commune, Rogue One), a reasonably honest police detective in a corrupt force led by his uncle the district police chief, is assigned to investigate the murder of a beautiful singer found dead in her room at the upscale Nile Hilton Hotel in downtown Tahrir Square. What initially seems to be a crime of passion becomes something much more disturbing. The sole eyewitness, an undocumented Sudanese housekeeper, has disappeared. Noredin’s search for clues takes him from the grimy backstreets of immigrant slums to the sumptuous villas of the power elite, where he tracks the likeliest suspect, an “untouchable” tycoon who is a member of Parliament and a friend of President Mubarak. Told he should close the case as suicide, Noredin cannot stop, setting himself on a dangerous collision course with those who would rather not see justice prevail. Winner of the Grand Jury Prize for World Cinema (Drama) at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival. (Fully subtitled)
