The Uprising

(The Uprising) Director: Peter Snowdon, B - GB, 2013, Arabic-English version / English subtitles, 78 min

Best World Documentary Film IDFF Jihlava2013.
Consisting of amateur video footage of the Arab Spring uploaded onto YouTube, this documentary presents seven days of the uprising, captured from the inside. Blurry but unfiltered images of protestors, brutal police crackdowns, and destroyed cities show that the best way to understand chaos is to be a part of it. When the cameraman asks a man standing on the street to describe the events of recent days, he answers, “This is the real Egypt. Before, we were living somewhere else. We are all pilgrims, emigrants, exiles.”

The screening is held in partnership with IDFF Jihlava.
