The Noise of Cairo, a new film documentary about the art scene in Cairo after the revolution
The film follows the interplay between art and the revolution in Egypt. Protest of any kind was punished violently in pre-revolutionary Egypt and artistic expression was considered nothing but a threat to the status quo. But since the fall of the Mubarak dictatorship, the art scene in Cairo is flourishing once again. A very inspirational film. If you’re interested in the arts and/or Africa, I think you’ll love this.
