Storyline

Every time 22-year-old Heba Afify heads out to cover the historical events shaping her country's future, her mother is compelled to remind her, 'I know you are a journalist, but you're still a girl!' Defying cultural norms and family expectations, Heba takes to the streets to report on an Egypt in turmoil, using tweets, texts and posts. Her coming of age, political awakening and the disillusionment that follows, mirrors that of a nation seeking the freedom to shape its own destiny and democracy. Written by Anonymous

Great Documentary!
31 May 2012 | by darthpaperSee all my reviews

Words of witness tells the story of the revolution from the point of view of the people. Heba The young Journalist goes into the heart of Tahrir square to ask, why even after the fall of the old regime, people are still protesting? What are they looking for? The Film Shows the confusion,happiness and sorrow that the people of Egypt faced before, during and after the revolution. Amazing cinematography! Whatever your feelings are about the revolution, after seeing this film you'll understand why the people revolted! and why they are still protesting whether you agree with them or not! Heba as a young Arab journalist is a very interesting character.
