Terrorism and Kebab

(105 mins) Set in the El-Mugamaa building in Cairo, the center of the monolithic Egyptian bureaucracy, this smash-hit comedy denounces the absurdity of bureaucracy while it is also a dramatic parable on impotence. A father arrives at the building to request the transfer of his son to a school nearer his home. Things get out of hand when he is taken for a terrorist, leading up to his demand for the finest kebabs.

In Arabic with English subtitles.
