A positive chapter in Egypt's history
20 March 2014 | by (São Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

30 years of a repressive regime led by Mubarak breaks down when people finally have enough of his rulings and decide to fight for democracy in Egypt. 18 days, several casualties on both the protesters and the military, and the regime is struck down with the resignation of its leader. Who would have thought? Peaceful manifestations for the most part, except when the police imagined that the crowd at Tahrir Square was a menace and decided to complicate things, but Egypt people showed to the world how things are done when you're unsatisfied with your government, demanding changes, making your protest and without using of violence.

Journalist Mohamed Abdel Koddous covered the days before Mubarak's fall, gathering with the crowd, joining the people and speaking with them, hearing their stories about the current situation of the country, the brutal repression up until that time with tortures in prisons (with some disturbing images in the very first scenes) and feeling a real sense of tension at each reunion. At the same time he covers the movements and the agitation, filming for his TV station, he also make separate videos presenting part of his views of this situation with the public - here's someone engaged with the population.

This a rather unique documentary, an important historical moment of Egypt (as of now, things aren't so great with the new government and more protests are happening). What's present here is a glorious and beautiful demonstration of union against tyranny and violence, everyone fighting for a democratic society. The view I have from the gatherings in Egypt, shown here and in the news back in 2012, was to notice that after all those demonstrations, more and more similar to those started to take place around the world, one after another in the months following, and crossing 2013/2014 as well. Positive campaigns, social activism stronger than ever, it felt like a new version of 1968 but more successful. June 2013 will remain a historical date in Brazil just like January/February 2012 was to the Egpytians. We didn't fought to overthrown a dictator but for the first time people said "hell no" to the abusive governments fares with transportation, corruption and such, and many important state governors and authorities had to back down for the first time ever and cancel their plans of charging more and more taxes. Those campaigns went national and most of them provided great results. Change was possible and the great nation of Egypt led the way. 9/10

P.S.: the title calls it an unfinished revolution because it was wrapped and shown on HBO in January, the final days of the month when Mubarak announced his leave from office but he only got out in February.
