Rev. Bill Crews’ Big Picture Film Festival is holding a special screening of the acclaimed movie, Clash.
Set entirely within the confines of a police van, Clash dramatises the ongoing political unrest in Egypt two years after the Arab Spring.
It’s 2013 and mass protests have led to the ouster of the ruling Muslim Brotherhood by the army. A series of arrests finds rival demonstrators trapped in a paddy wagon together under the threat of impossibly stifling heat.
From this simple setup, a white-knuckled tale of resistance and shared humanity is woven that artfully evokes the political fault lines in the Arab world’s most populous nation. Get your tickets here.
