Documenting the ongoing 2011 Egyptian Revolution, THE SQUARE details the incredible sacrifices made by a group of activists as they battle regimes and risk their lives in the wake of their country's overthrow of a 30-year dictatorship. A truly immersive experience, the film transports viewers into the intense emotional drama and personal stories behind the headlines while depicting the revolution from its roots in Tahrir Square.
Winner of three Emmy Awards and nominated for a Best Documentary Feature Oscar, THE SQUARE premiered at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, where it won the Audience Award for World Cinema in the documentary category.
“Stunning... a story that non-Egyptians may know from news reports, but one that has not yet been told with such rousing and heartbreaking clarity.” –The New York Times (Critic's Pick)
