A free screening of the Oscar-nominated documentary The Square. The film details the incredible sacrifices made by a group of young Egyptian activists battling injustice, corruption and poverty.
Risking their lives during the revolution, they give us a personal view of the conflict since the country’s overthrow of a 30-year dictatorship in 2011.
Directed by Egyptian-American filmmaker Jehane Noujaim, The Square is a truly immersive experience, transporting the viewer deeply into the intense emotional drama and personal stories behind the news.
It is the inspirational story of young people claiming their rights, struggling through multiple forces: from a brutal army dictatorship willing to crush protestors with military tanks, to a corrupt Muslim Brotherhood using mosques to manipulate voters.
