Egyptian Festival Hit CLASH Debuts on ARROW





Clash

On no account should you miss ARROW’s June presentation of the festival smash (and winner of the Un Certain Regard award at Cannes in 2016) Clash, an intense and staggeringly important portrait of Egypt, set in Cairo in 2013, two years after the Egyptian revolution, where demonstrators of divergent political and religious backgrounds are forcibly detained together in a claustrophobic police truck.

Don’t take our word for it, here’s what Tom Hanks had to say about the film: “If there’s any way you can see Clash… you must. You simply must.”

SYNOPSIS:

Cairo – 2013, two years after the Egyptian revolution, demonstrators of divergent political and religious backgrounds are forcibly detained together in a claustrophobic police truck during the turmoil that erupts following the ousting of former president Morsi from power. The factions quickly divide between supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood and those backing the military, alongside a pair of neutral journalists and a mother determined to be detained with her son. With all sense of national unity in tatters and the violence on the outside ever-escalating can the prisoners find common ground and stand a chance of survival?

I love practical effects, stop-motion animation and gore, but most of all I love a good story! I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features. I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs. Currently playing: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Yakuza Zero and Mafia III.
