Diab wrote El Gezira (The Island), which was a huge success in Egypt and throughout the Arab world; and represented Egypt in the 2007 Oscar race. Diab was appreciated for his engagement and public participation during the 2011 Egyptian Revolution. His interest in chronicling the revolution led to his second feature, Eshtebak (Clash), which was the opening film in Un Certain Regard 2016.
