This harrowing, high-pitched drama is set entirely in a police truck during riots between Egypt’s pro-military supporters and the Muslim Brotherhood.
In July 2013 President Morsi was overthrown by the army and many people took off to the streets either to celebrate or protest. We start in an empty police van which soon fills with an American/Egyptian reporter, revolutionaries, Muslim Brotherhood supporters, and young men who had nothing to do with it.
Aside from the keen sense of claustrophobia, the lensing captures in horrifying, quick-eyed observation the chaos outside. At the end, the message is clear: any sense of national unity has disintegrated, and the escalating violence is driving Egypt over the edge into bedlam. (Subtitles)
