Documentary / Arabic

An exhilarating, immersive, impressionistic account of the revolution that lead to the resignation of Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak in February last year. Director Stefano Savona's camera weaves through crowds chanting slogans, captures the horror when it is realised that live ammunition is being used on protestors, eavesdrops on heated discussions about what kind of government should replace Mubarak, and, finally, witnesses the joy of victory. Visually beautiful, hypnotically intense, this is superb on-the-ground documentary filmmaking.
