Documentary director Jehane Noujaim captures the inner-workings behind the revolution in Egypt with her film The Square. “The camera is our weapon.” Check it all out after the jump.

Official background synopsis can be read as follows:

“The Egyptian Revolution has been an ongoing rollercoaster over the past two and a half years. Through the news, we only get a glimpse of the bloodiest battle, an election, or a million man march. At the beginning of July 2013, we witnessed the second president deposed within the space of three years.

 

THE SQUARE is an 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, in the fight to create a society of conscience.”
