Accurate Mirror of Present-day Egypt
24 October 2016 | by See all my reviews

After the screening in the London Film Festival, when the director and producer came on stage to speak with the audience (overwhelmingly from the Middle East), more than one person complained to them that the movie had too much humour in it while there was nothing amusing about Egypt's regime and the tragic events that came on the heels of its botched popular revolt. Clash is shot from within the interior of a police van. Inside a group of people - women and men, Islamists and secularists, young and old - are being moved around Cairo. They have all been arbitrarily and violently detained by the security forces during pro- and anti- regime demonstrations taking place on this day, and they are moved around simply because the prisons are already too full. The interactions among the people inside the van and their interactions with the security personnel and others outside it engulf the viewers with claustrophobia, anger, fear, horror, despair, and glimmers of hope that are quickly dispelled. And yes, as the Director explained, there are funny moments, simply because Egyptians are humorous. It is a bold and daring film, exposing all those who took part in it to the risks of the regime's displeasure. It has been approved for screening by the Egyptian censor, but not without some interventions that the director and producer preferred not to recall. All in all, a superb mirror of the suffocating air in present day Egypt.
