International Programme Documentary Film - Arab Spring

Having still been in Tahrir Square a short while ago, now fresh from the cutting table off to Leipzig. The first images of an upheaval shot briefly before it began, during the events and thereafter. A society, walled in with its fears, and people that overcome it. Activists, bloggers, creative people – the protagonists of this upheaval and their sto-ries. A very personal chronicle of the events. And reflections on the future role of Is-lam.

What YouTube and the German Tagesschau newscast did not show: the true face of a revolution – in a place that is charged with history.
