Based on a true story, Sundance Award winner THE NILE HILTON INCIDENT is a political crime thriller that plays “like an Arabic riff on Chinatown or L.A. Confidential” (Entertainment Weekly). Weeks before the 2011 Egyptian revolution, Noredin, 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. Upon realizing this, Noredin decides to break the rules in order to obtain justice, colliding not only with the system but also with himself.
