October 6, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm$4.00
The Nile Hilton Incident – Tarik Saleh – Sweden/Denmark – 2017 – 106 min.
Even though his superiors are eager to label it a suicide, Noredin, a police detective in Cairo, feels compelled to investigate the case of a murdered woman, a crime that leads him deeper into a dark world of corruption where justice is hard to find. Set days before the 2011 Egyptian Revolution, Saleh’s film is “a true Film Noir, that develops and mediates a precise vision of a contemporary reality” (Le Monde) and presents the city of Cairo “as a fugue-like dystopian wasteland littered with the bodies of innocents and the broken shards of the laws intended to protect them” (Variety).

Nominated: Seattle International Film Festival – Art Film Festival.
