Glimpses of a Revolution (2014)
Directed, filmed and edited a short artistic documentary in and around Tahrir Square, Cairo, Egypt. Meditative, celebratory, and haunting glimpses into the "January 25th Revolution" that took place in and around Tahrir Square before and after the fall of Hosni Mubarak which sparked the Arab Spring. It was filmed between January 25 2011 - February 30th 2011. Lost in translation but completely immersed in the energy of this time, this footage attempts to portray the most poignant moments within the square as it was experienced and give viewers a more intimate perspective of the revolution, as well as the roles that our digital media (smartphones, social media platforms) had in capturing this world event and organizing those who participated.
This film was screened at the Roxie Theater in San Francisco in July, 2014.
