This is the website (nearly entirely in Arabic…) for the Mosireen Collective, a collective of Egyptian revolutionary filmmakers who have archived in video the uprising in Egypt, now with more than 1000 hours of footage to be made available for use in filmmaking and activism.
What a treasure trove and an incredible tool for Egyptian activists and citizen journalists!
The Syrian Uprising. As we speak, thousands of people keep dying for freedoms most of us take for granted. They’re being slaughtered mercilessly, yet they keep on going. For a whole year they keep enduring the suffering, and yet they won’t quit. What would I do in their situation? Would I be that brave? I’m lucky that, for the foreseeable future, I don’t even have to find out.
