Cast members and makers of the film "Sheikh Jackson" pose for a photograph on the red carpet during the first International El Gouna Film Festival, in the Red Sea resort of el-Gouna, Egypt, Friday, Sept. 22, 2017. The film which is to be released in Egyptian cinemas later this month and which Egypt has put forward as a candidate for a best foreign film Oscar nomination, goes into delicate territory. The film risks a backlash from the public, either by viewers who see as it as too sympathetic to Islamists or, from the other side, as mocking religious beliefs. (AP Photo/Nariman El-Mofty)
