With an introduction and discussion with Director Khaled Sayed.

Filmed primarily in Egypt in March of 2011, soon after the January revolution, this film introduces you to Egyptians who lived under Mubarak and helped to bring him down. Included are interviews with many young revolutionaries fighting for a new start for Egypt.

Watch as people tell you their reasons for taking to the streets of Egypt to call for freedom and reforms, and what led them to ask for Mubarak’s resignation. They also tell you about their experiences during the protest that took 18 days to remove Mubarak from power, and their views on the world’s reaction to their stand off. Feel the joy as their hard work pays off when Mubarak steps down after thirty years in power. This documentary is a snapshot of Egyptian people’s views about what happened and why. (60 min., 2011)

Khaled Sayed is a Director with more than eight years of experience working with digital video and new media. After working as a lawyer in Cairo, he moved to the United States where he studied Multimedia production at San Francisco State University, and has directed and produced commercials, documentaries, online campaigns, promos, and short films for a wide range of industries.
