Shooting the Sphinx: a unique political thriller about an American filmmaker who becomes involved in the Egyptian Revolution of 2011 by Avram Noble Ludwig.
In Hollywood, Ari Basher is the stuff of legends, the man who always gets the impossible-to-film shots. In Cairo, however, he faces the most difficult and dangerous challenge of his career: he must photograph, from mere feet away, the face of the imperishable Sphinx. The film depends on it, but if Ari damages the ancient Sphinx, he could end up in an Egyptian prison for life or even dead.
Compounding his troubles, Ari has saved a dark-haired revolutionary named Farah from being raped by government thugs, and she has turned his life around. Now he is caught in a web of intrigue, torn between his need to work with the military dictatorship to get the shot and his desire for this passionate revolutionary. Losing her is not an option.
Will Ari join in the liberation of Egypt? Will he and Farah escape the country alive? Finally will Ari get the shot?
