Winner of the World Cinema Grand Jury Prize at last year's Sundance Festival, The Nile Hilton Incident takes the real life events of the Arab Spring, and places them in a story and style that wouldn’t seem out of place in a classic LA film noir.

Weeks before the 2011 Egyptian revolution, Noredin (Fares Fares), 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.

The film is filled with textures, drawing parallels between the city’s rising tensions and the anti-hero's crumbling personal prospects, managing to remain a moody and atmospheric private eye-style mystery, while offering more insight into the final days of Mubarak's presidency than any documentary could ever manage.

Fares is an absolutly compelling screen presence, while Swedish/Egyptian writer and director Tarik Saleh’s gritty style and thought-provoking script will leave you engaged and tense throughout.
