Accurate Mirror of Present-day Egypt
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.
A pulsating thriller set within the confines of a police van traversing through Cairo during the riots
After almost three decades of dictatorial reign, when the government of President Hosni Mubarak was overthrown by the events following Tahrir Square in 2011, popular elections brought Mohammed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood to power in Egypt. However, his radical religious agenda drove a deep wedge in a multi-ethnic society and after a popular, violent uprising by his opponents in 2013, the army took control. This pushed the country on the brink of civil war. Egypt became a chaotic crucible and was enveloped in a season of daily protests on the streets between supporters of Muslim Brotherhood who felt that their democratically elected government was unfairly unseated and supporters of the army who sought an end to the fundamentalist regime of the Muslim Brotherhood.
The film captures one such day when protests break out in various parts of Cairo between these opposing factions. The entire movie is set and has been filmed within the confines of a police van which has been deployed on the street. While it starts with the arrest of an Egyptian born journalist working with the Associated Press covering the clashes along with his local freelance cameraman, the van is quickly filled up with a motley assembly of people cutting across the spectrum of age, economic status and owing their allegiance to either side of the ideological divide. Tempers fray with the supporters of Muslim Brotherhood and the pro-army group find themselves at each other’s throats and find that their strength of ideological conviction is put to a litmus test by this sticky situation. As the cops try to shepherd the police van to safety traversing through treacherous streets of midtown Cairo filled with rioting mobs, the van – literally as well as figuratively – becomes a simmering cauldron ready to explode.
