    Ahmed Nour / Egypt – Morocco / 2013 / 71 / Arabic / s.t. English

A deeply personal film that reflects on revolution in Egypt as the lens lyrically moves among rich, captivating images, which are framed by thoughtful narration.

Using an artistic combination of documentary footage, archive images, animation scenes, animated characters representing the family members of the filmmaker, and his own voice-over, the director tells the story of himself and of his generation, born with the birth of Mubarak’s rule in the early 80s of last century, and of his forgotten home city, Suez, the famous city of the Suez canal that triggered the revolution to the extent of becoming known as “The flame of the Egyptian revolution.”

    including introduction by Lillian Boctor
