The events of the film take us back to 25 June 2009 as the news of Michael Jackson's death took the world by storm affecting many, especially a preacher who is dubbed "Jackson" since his school days. But, what does a preacher have in common with the King of Pop? More importantly, can he now go back to his normal life, or will his memories and relationships with his loved ones raise the most prominent question in his mind; is he the Skeikh, Jackson, or both?
Co-produced by The Producers, Film Clinic and El Massa Art Production, Sheikh Jackson is written and directed by Amr Salama and stars Ahmad Al Fishawy, who previously collaborated with Salama on Zay El Naharda, alongside Maged El Kedwany, Ahmed Malek, and Amina Khalil. The film will also feature several guest stars, including Dorra, Basma, and Mahmoud El-Bezzawy.
