Academy Award Nominee - Best Documentary Feature

The Square

Egypt, United States | 2013 | Jehane Noujaim

The Square

The recent political upheavals in Egypt—from Tahrir Square and public elections to the removal of two presidents and recurrent military rule—are personalized in this galvanizing account of six young activists (a singer-songwriter, a human rights advocate, a Muslim Brotherhood member, et al.) and their very different roles in the revolution. This New York Film Festival selection won the world documentary prize at Sundance and a People’s Choice audience award at the Toronto Int’l Film Festival. “Offers more than just pictures of a revolution; it lets you into the mind-set of those fighting for their future, and that makes all the difference.” –Time Out New York.
