Set in the days leading up to the 2011 Tahrir Square uprising, The Nile Hilton Incident follows Police Detective Noredin (Fares Fares) as he investigates the murder of a singer. While Noredin has played his own part in the systemic corruption of the police department, this case is different. Pressed by his superiors to rule the death a suicide and move on, Noredin finds himself drawn further in, exposing increasingly disturbing details of the crime that lead him from the streets to the mansions of Egypt’s power elite.
Based on true events and framed by the heightening unrest in the country, Saleh’s film is a tense and timely thriller that is a biting commentary on the sustained criminality of Mubarak’s rule.
