Tahrir: Liberation Square

Sunday, March 24, 2013 - 3:00pm
Melwood Screening Room, 477 Melwood Ave.
Sponsored By: 
International Film Festival

Experience the overthrow of a 30-year regime of oppression, corruption, and abuse in Stefano Savona's documentary, Tahir: Liberation Square. Savona introduces us to young Egyptians who, day by day, come to the Square, chanting, marching and discussing the bright future of a free Egypt. We feel their exhilaration during an inspirational speech by Google executive Wael Ghonim, whose Facebook page helped spark the revolution. We feel their anger as an ex-convict admits that Mubarak hired prisoners as thugs to quell the demonstrators.
