Jehane Noujaim’s THE SQUARE is a gripping portrait of the Egyptian revolution and the way it has been fought on the front lines with the game-changing weapons of cameras and social media. It is an epic documentary that captures the immediacy and intensity of the protests in Tahrir Square— from the 2011 overthrow of Hosni Mubarak, to the ousting of Mohammed Morsi in 2013— through the eyes of the movement’s young activists. The Square will be showing all week at the Roxie Theater.
After the movie screening, we will be hosting a Skyped Q and A with Mostafa Ali, a journalist for Ahram Online and member of Egypt’s Revolutionary Socialists.
