Documentary / Arabic, English
Experiencing the Arab revolutions from the inside.
How does one present such a complex phenomenon as the 2011 Arab Spring uprisings? This feature-length documentary mines the extensive archive of YouTube videos made by citizens and long-term residents of Tunisia, Egypt, Bahrain, Libya, Syria and Yemen. The film skilfully weaves together this footage, not to recount the actual chronology of events or analyse their causes, but to create an imaginary pan-Arab uprising that exists (for the moment) only on the screen.
