WORDS OF WITNESS , Documentary Competition, A Film by Mai Iskander

WORDS OF WITNESS – Documentary Competition — A Film by Mai Iskander

Updating your Facebook status is a political act in this visceral, on-the-ground documentary of a 21st century revolution in progress. When the Egyptian people rose up against President Mubarak, Heba Afify was a 22-year-old journalist for an English-language paper. Her Facebook and Twitter accounts, along with those of many young Egyptians, become essential weapons in bringing down the former regime, a means to rally support and focus the movement’s strength.

Director Mai Iskander (“Garbage Dreams”) follows Afify into the homes and offices of protestors, organizers and citizens caught up in revolutionary fervor, providing a thrilling perspective on a populace rising up to demand the right to live their own lives.
