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 battles, 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 that transports the viewer deep into the intense emotional drama and personal stories behind the news. It is the inspirational story of young people claiming their rights, struggling against multiple forces, in their fight to create a society of conscience.
