“This is Chaos” (2007) is the last film of the late veteran Egyptian director Youssef Chahine. The film is a passionate condemnation of corruption, state violence, and police abuse in the critical years before the 2011 revolution. Hatem, the central character of the film, is a Mafioso-style cop that rules a neighborhood with an iron fist. Chahine’s untimely death before the film was finished drove his protégée Khaled Youssef to complete it.
Each film will be followed by a brief discussion moderated by Dr. Adel Iskandar.
