The Square

About the Film

"As long as there’s a camera, the revolution will continue,” says one of the young subjects of THE SQUARE. It does continue, and two years of struggle (right until the summer of 2013) are shown through the eyes of a group of protesters from all walks of society that first came together in Tahrir Square during the Egyptian Revolution of 2011. The documentary follows these unlikely companions as they face violence, religious oppression, the assumptions of their elders, and the gap between their expectations and the reality of trying to change the country they’ll inherit.

THE SQUARE received an honorable mention in our Films of Conflict and Resolution section, and the Brizzolara Family Foundation is bestowing a $2,000 cash prize to the filmmakers.
