Riches: The Egyptian movie that culminated in “Cannes” and sparked outrage in “El Gouna”


The screening of the Egyptian film crowned at the Cannes Film Festival “Rishes” at the El Gouna Festival sparked a great deal of controversy after three actors left the theater, accusing the film of insulting Egypt. Reactions to the film and anger from it differed, creating a crisis that prompted the El Gouna Festival to clarify its position in an official statement.

This is the second time that the film Riches, directed by Omar Al-Zuhairi, has topped the headlines and the talk of those interested in cinema.

The first time was when the film won the Critics’ Grand Prix at the Cannes International Film Festival, and the Egyptian government and people celebrated it at that time.

The second time was when it was shown the day before yesterday at the El Gouna Film Festival in Egypt.
