Product Description

Months before 2011’s momentous uprising in Egypt many talked of a revolution – but no one knew when that day would come. Going behind the headlines, WE ARE EGYPT – filmed in the 14 months leading up to the Revolution – highlights the years of mounting resentment against the ruling regime.

Deeply embedded inside the turmoil, filmmaker Lillie Paquette followed key opposition figures and young democracy activists as they struggled against extraordinary odds and at great personal risk to remove an uncompromising U.S. -backed authoritarian regime determined to stay in power.

Includes 82 minutes of bonus features including Memories of Egypt’s 1952 Revolution with Omar Sharif, Inside Mubarak’s NDP Headquarters with Ali Eldin Hilal, Noam Chomsky on US foreign policy in Egypt, democracy activists Esraa Abdel Fattah and Basem Fathy after the Revolution, as well as segments featuring Michele Dunne of the Carnegie Endowment and Laith Kubba of the National Endowment for Democracy.
