Streaming Video - 2013
Rate this:
Filmed during the spring of 2011, this program offers an inside look at the events that led to Hosni Mubarak's resignation and a new political era in Egypt. It gives the uprisings in Cairo and other cities historical and cultural context so that viewers can better understand how a powerful, U.S.-backed regime could crumble with minimal violence and in such short order. In addition to a wide-ranging sociopolitical discussion, the film's on-the-ground testimonials fill in important details which, at the time, didn't reach observers outside the country. Egyptians from all walks of life are interviewed, explaining their contributions to Mubarak's fall and offering their reasons for taking to the streets to call for freedom and reforms. From the brewing discontent that preceded the revolution to the 18 days of often brutally suppressed protests in which success seemed far from inevitable, this film puts viewers in the center of the action.
