The Square, Jehane Noujaim

The Square, 2013, 108 minutes: The Egyptian Revolution has been an ongoing rollercoaster over the past two and a half years [January 2011-July 2013]. Through the news, we only get a glimpse of the bloodiest battle, an election, or a million man march. At the beginning of July 2013, we witnessed the second president deposed within the space of three years.

The Square is an immersive experience, transporting the viewer deeply into the intense emotional drama and personal stories behind the news. It is the inspirational story of young people claiming their rights, struggling through multiple forces, in the fight to create a society of conscience.
