The screening will be attended by director Karim El Shenawy.

Most recently, Gunshot won the Best Actor Award,given to Ahmad Al Fishawy, and the Best Cinematography Award, given to DOP Abdelsalam Moussa,at the 67th Egyptian Catholic Center Cinema Festival.

Since its release on October 3rd in Egypt, Gunshot has received wide acclaim from critics and audiences alike. The film has been released in six Gulf States, including: Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Qatar, Oman, Kuwait, and Bahrain. Gunshot has been recently released in Tunisia.

Gunshot had a full-house screening during its world premiere at the 2nd El Gouna Film Festival and was selected as the closing film of the Malmö Arab 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.
