Je suis le peuple - Affiche 450 x 600

I Am the People

  • Directed by Anna ROUSSILLON 
  • Duration: 111 ‘
  • National release: January 13, 2016


As the Egyptian people rise up in Tahrir Square, a rural community in the Nile valley follows the revolution on TV, radio and in the newspapers. Intimately shot over the three year period from the overthrow of Mubarak to the fall of Morsi, we are shown an alternate view of the revolution through the eyes of Farraj, his family, and friends as they make sense of and debate national politics. Through the experiences and voices of a community in the periphery, I Am the People presents a complex picture of the struggle for democracy in Egypt.
