Writer/Director Mohamed Diab will direct his latest work, CLASH, which revolves around the unrest in Egypt’s political system. The film will be produced by Mohamed Hefzy’s Film Clinic, and EMC Media, which is based in Dubai.
The entire film is set inside an overcrowded police truck that is packed with Muslim Brotherhood demonstrators. People both for and against the Brotherhood are squished together in the truck, as a direct result of the massive crowds celebrating the ouster of former Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi. The film is supposed to portray the best and worst sides of humanity that come out following a political event of that magnitude.
The film is scheduled to go into pre-production in August, and start shooting in October of this year.
