The revolution in lightweight, portable HD cameras exploded alongside the “Arab Spring” and the Egyptian people’s uprising on Cairo’s Tahrir Square in the spring of 2011. Directors Karim and Omar take shaky footage of street fighting showing the first signs of a possible civil war between different army factions back to their home, which becomes a refuge and a place for reflecting upon the fall of Hosni Mubarak and the inevitable declaration of freedom – a freedom that remains half open, with further developments associated with both opportunities and risks.
