A note from independent filmmaker David Conover on why he chose this film:
In this highly-informative history documentary by Marty Stalker, we hear from a few of Cairo’s students, professors, and lawmakers. They speak simple words—freedom, justice, democracy, nationalism, and one hand. They relay how hope and frustration fueled the 2011 Arab Spring regional uprisings, and how participation in that movement became a celebrated yet complicated part of their life. The film takes place at a pivot point on the contemporary Egyptian timeline, just after the revolution, but just before the highly-politicized public trials of the insiders from the overthrown tyrant Mubarek. How much will these trials reflect a downtrodden people’s rage and thirst for revenge? Was the revolution a failure? A success? Any new path forward is one of tension and uncertainty.
