Times of revolution have always been fertile ground for new ideas and approaches to filmmaking. With that in mind, film scholar and practitioner, Alisa Lebow, went to Egypt in the aftermath of the 2011 revolution to talk to filmmakers about the way in which their practices may have changed as a result of their participation in these events. Interviewing over thirty filmmakers, artists, activists, and historians, this project creates a platform to think alongside the people making films in the thick of the unrest and afterwards. The interviews are curated into clusters of detailed conversations, grouped around themes, people, and projects. Readers follow these multi-vocal exchanges to hear a range of views about everything from filming on the front lines to organizing an independent filmmakers syndicate, or telling one's personal story in the midst of such a historic moment. The project touches on questions of form, the relationship between documentary, journalism, art, and activism, as well as questions of historiography, propaganda, and much more. Each filmmaker and every associated theme is introduced with a headnote to facilitate engagement with this rich and unique media-driven investigation.

A story of women, art and revolution, this film documents the critical role that revolutionary street art played-and is continuing to play-in the political uprising of Egypt. Introducing a cadre of courageous and gifted female artists who are deeply involved in the struggle for social and political justice, Nefertiti's Daughters illustrates the surprising ways that artwork, instead of being relegated to dusty museums and academia, can instead become a powerful tool in the ongoing fight for civil and human rights.

"On January 25, 2011, the world was captivated as thousands of protesters flooded Tahrir Square in Cairo, demanding an end to the regime of President Hosni Mubarak. But the ground for the protests had been laid in the weeks and months preceding the mass outpouring of opposition. Goodbye Mubarak! takes us to Egypt during the fall of 2010, in the run-up to legislative elections. What we discover is a revolution-in-waiting already simmering under the surface of Egyptian society."--Distributor's abstract.

"Soon after the first reports came about the occupation of Tahrir Square, filmmaker Stefano Savona headed for Cairo, where he stayed, amidst the ever-growing masses in the Square, for weeks. His film introduces us to young Egyptians such as Elsayed, Noha and Ahmed, spending all day and night talking, shouting, singing, finally expressing everything they were forbidden to say out loud until now. As the protests grow in intensity, the regime's repression becomes more violent, with the terrifying potential for massacre never far away. 'Tahrir' is a film written in the faces, hands, and voices of those who experienced this period in the Square. It is a day-to-day account of the Egyptian revolution, capturing the anger, fear, resolve and finally elation of those who made it happen."--Distributor's abstract.
