The Nile Hilton Incident

Winner of the Sundance World Cinema Grand Jury Prize in 2017, this thrilling neo noir is set in Cairo, weeks before the 2011 revolution.

Noredin, a police officer in Cairo's corrupt system, investigates the murder of a famous club singer at the Nile Hilton Hotel. What initially seems to be a crime of passion turns into something that concerns the very power elite of Egypt. Upon realizing this, Noredin decides to break the rules in order to obtain justice, colliding not only with the system but also with himself.
