Synopsis

This powerful Oscar-nominated documentary captures the ongoing tumult of revolution in Egypt since its initial eruption in 2011, when a huge mass of people gathered in Tahrir Square to demonstrate. They managed to oust unpopular long-time president Hosni Mubarak, only to see their gains hijacked and power seized by the corrupt Muslim Brotherhood, who had cut a deal with the army – bringing on another wave of huge popular protest and revolution to remove new president Mohammed Morsi. The stirring film is no exercise in dry politics, as awe-inspiring overhead shots show crowds swarming the city of Cairo, and the power of the people to enact change shows itself to be both high-risk and very real.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
