Cairo - Egypt | Wednesday, October 3, 2018:
After a full-house screening at its world premiere at the 2nd El Gouna Film Festival, iProductions and Film Clinic have released Gunshot by director Karim El Shenawy and screenwriter Haitham Dabbour in Egyptian theaters today, Wednesday, October 3.
Director Karim El Shenawy said, "I hope that the film receives positive reviews from audiences, because it's an unusual film that is very engaging and at the same time arouses viewers' curiosity about the truth behind what's happening in the film rather than only finding out who the killer is like most detective films." Screenwriter Haitham Dabbour added, "I'm happy with the film's release in theaters and I'm waiting for audiences' reactions especially that the film gives audiences something to think about." Ahmed Fahmy, Managing Director of iProductions, said, "The film introduces a new style to the Egyptian film industry. We worked hard to provide all the necessary production requirements to bring out this exceptional film. I believe that the film will attract many Egyptian film lovers just like it attracted festival-goers."
It's worth mentioning that Gunshot was selected as the closing film of the Malmö Arab Film Festival (October 5-9) to mark its second stop at international film festivals after its world premiere at the 2nd El Gouna Film Festival.
Amid deadly clashes with anti-riot forces, bodies start piling in Cairo's morgue. While examining the cadaver of Alaa Abu Zayd, the forensic doctor notices something unusual. The doctor, who is alcohol dependent and battles personal and family problems, writes a medical report that stirs media frenzy, public anger, and accusations of political and ethical corruption. Along with a hard-working journalist, they undertake a journey seeking facts, where their perception of truth, their principles and beliefs are challenged, and they are forced to face the dilemma of their life.
Produced by iProductions and Film Clinic, Gunshot stars Ahmad Al Fishawy, Ruby, Mohamed Mamdouh, Arfa Abdel Rassoul and Asmaa Aboul Yazeed, along with guest stars Ahmed Malek, Hana Shiha, Ahmad Kamal, Safaa El Toukhy, Samy Maghawry and Mohamed Radwan. The film crew brings together DOP Abdelsalam Moussa, Costume Designer Nahed Nasrallah, Production Designer Ali Hossam Ali, Technical Producer Ahmed Youssef, and Editor Ahmed Hafez, in addition to Sound Engineer Ahmed Adnan, Sound Mixer Ahmad Abu Saad and Music Composer Amine Bouhafa, under the supervision of Ahmed Fahmi. Gunshot's marketing is done by MAD Solutions.
iProductions's latest work is the controversial drama film Sheikh Jackson, which was released last year in 2017. The company is getting ready to release the new film Al Deif (The Guest) by Hadi ElBagoury.
