Mosireen, an Egyptian film collective

I would like to share this video with you. I think it is a very majestic account of the Egyptian ‘revolution’ even if it might be a little declamatory for our taste. But it was made in a situation of hopelessness when it didn’t look like that the revolutionary situation could be sustained or taken to the next level. So the film collective Mosireen created this video out of iconic images of the uprisings. Mosireen was “born out of the explosion of citizen journalism and cultural activism in Egypt during the revolution” (http://mosireen.org/?page_id=6).

I think this is a very great example of using social media!
