Egyptian American filmmaker Sherif Sadek goes to his native Cairo with his family one year after the start of the Egyptian Revolution. With tons of misinformation flying around in the media, Sadek is determined to see for himself how Egyptians will navigate the bumpy road to democracy, especially after decades of authoritarianism. His journey takes him from famed Tahrir Square to the inside of taxi cabs to rallies to slums as he searches for perspectives from all walks of life.Written by
Best documentary of the year, Sheriff Sadek has created a wonderful documentary in itself with this trip through superior events, its really one of the best documentaries i have ever watched in the last period , it concentrates on each single event happened in the Egyptian revolution!! as its telling a story at the same time, the best thing about the documentary is that it filmed in Cairo and New York, with real people who experienced the Egyptian revolution The new media have shown you the overview of events happening in Egypt, but they have glossed over the real effect of these events on the people who live there. Although people have spoken about the real reasons for the revolution, this aspect is often overlooked by the media because of their interest. This documentary is about the people's life under the Mubarak regime, and during the revolution, as well as what they are hoping to accomplish in the post-Mubarak future. Compare and contrast the lifestyles of different strata of society who lived under Mubarak, and how they see their lives changing. Including interview with young revolutionaries fighting for a new start for Egypt. Capturing a snapshot of people's views about what happened, and what should happen next, while the country is in transition a must watch film!! just waiting for more films to see from the Egyptian American filmmaker Sheriff Sadek,
