Tahrir Square film with Ahmed Salah
We have all heard of and even followed news of the Egyptian revolution when it kicked back in 2011. On this event we shall be watching The Square together, with commentary of Ahmed Salah, the Egyptian revolutionary living in SF. We will see the journey of the revolution in Egypt, and learn what happened to the revolution, and whether it is over or is it still an ongoing matter.
The Square is an intimate observational documentary that tells the real story of the ongoing struggle of the Egyptian Revolution through the eyes of six very different protesters. Starting in the tents of Tahrir in the days leading up to the fall of Mubarak, we follow our characters on a life-changing journey through the euphoria of victory into the uncertainties and dangers of the current "transitional period" under military rule, where everything they fought for is now under threat or in balance.
Ahmed Salah, an Egyptian Revolutionary. Salah was one of the co-founders of the Kifaya Movement (the Egyptian Movement for Change) in 2004 and remained a member of the Coordinators Council of Kifaya until mid-2008. He led the first, and only, youth movement in Egypt during the years 2005-2006, called Youth For Change. In addition, he was also the co-founder, strategist, and foreign affairs representative of the April 6 Youth Movement. In these capacities, Salah served as a principle organizer for the January 25th revolution.
