Based on a thrilling true story, Sundance Award-winner THE NILE HILTON INCIDENT is a crime noir that plays “like an Arabic riff on Chinatown” (Entertainment Weekly). Weeks before the 2011 Egyptian Revolution, Noredin, a police officer in Cairo, investigates a pop singer’s murder at the Nile Hilton Hotel. What initially appears to be a crime of passion turns into a complicated case involving the power elite of Egypt. When Noredin decides to break the rules to obtain justice, he begins to unravel not only the corrupt police system but also his own sense of self. "A paranoid portrait of individual and systemic corruption that leaves none of its characters unscarred." - Nick Schager, Variety
