Rags and Tatters

Egypt | 2013 | 87 minutes | Ahmad Abdalla

A nameless fugitive fights his way through the chaos of revolutionary Cairo to deliver cell phone footage of police brutality from his dying friend to the outside world. Hailed as "a touchtone of post-revolutionary Egyptian cinema."

Salvation Army

Morocco | 2013 | 82 minutes | Abdellah Taïa
