The only Egyptian film in recent memory to be led by an all female production team (director, writer, cinematographer and editor), One-Zero is a multi-strand narrative melodrama starring an all-star cast from the crème de la crème of the current Egyptian movie scene. Set on the eve of the 2008 Africa Nations Cup final, the film follows eight characters as they undergo tumultuous social complications. At times of frustration with political, economic and social realities, will the victory of the Egyptian football team consign everyday troubles to oblivion, even if only for one night? Or are the problems that conflict Egyptian society woven too deeply?
Stay for a post-screening Q&A with Khaled Abol Naga, star of One-Zero.
