Tahrir 2011:
The Good, the Bad and the Politician (2011)

Trailer
Synopsis
When Egyptians woke up on January 25th 2011, they never expected the one day demonstration planned for that public holiday to evolve into a full out revolution in hopes of overthrowing the regime's 30-year long grip on power. For the following 18 days, the world watched as millions of Egyptians demonstrated all over the country calling for an end to injustice, poverty, and corruption. This movement was led by several inspirational and influential young individuals who galvanized support for the movement through the media and social networks. Among them, three talented young directors decided to tell the yet unfinished story of the revolution from their own unique cinematic point of view, focusing on the protestors, the police force, and the former President Hosni Mubarak. Their focus was never about the politics, but the personal experiences of a handful of individuals whose choices would determine their fate and forever change the future of their country.
