The Square (Midan Al'Tahrir -ميدان التحرير) - Documentary - JDIFF

The Square follows a variety of revolutionaries as they take to Cairo’s Tahrir Square from 2011 to 2013 to protest the rule of Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak, then the military, and finally the newly elected president Mohamed Morsi. Jehane Noujaim’s documentary charts the rebellious efforts of three friends: twentysomething Ahmed Hassan, who preaches social unity and freedom; Kite Runner actor Khalid Abdalla, who advocates reshaping the underlying government apparatus; and Magdy Ashour, whose allegiance to the Muslim Brotherhood is complicated by his support for rule of law.

    The film had great footage of what really happened during the revolution and the different sides and opinions of the protesters. I enjoyed chatting afterwards with all.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
