Mohamed Diab’s stunning thriller Clash, the critically acclaimed new film set during the 2013 Egyptian protests, is finally screening at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI). Looking inside the political upheaval that engulfed Cairo in that year the film breathlessly explores the collision of religions, social views, and journalism in such a tumultuous time. Exclusive to ACMI, celebrated journalist Peter Greste (who spent 400 days in an Egyptian jail for reporting on the country whilst working for Al Jazeera) will be in conversation via skype hosted by Virginia Trioli this Thuursday! To celebrate the event, Bounty Films, ACMI and The Lowdown Under are giving you the chance to win one of five double passes to attend the screening this Thursday 6 April, 2017 @ 6pm!
“A nail-bitingly claustrophobic drama set inside a military prison van, Clash exposes humanity and stupidity on all sides. Thrilling.” – Stephen Russell, The Lowdown Under
