Screening of 1/2 Revolution at Makan on Thursday January 24, 2013

On Thursday January 24, 2013, Makan will hold a flash screening of the Arabic film "1/2 Revolution" at 9:00 PM.

The multi-award winning documentary film, "1/2 Revolution" 
Directed by Omar Shargawi and Karim El Hakim.
A Danish/Egyptian co-production, 1/2 Revolution is about a close-knit group of activist friends who struggle to stay alive and stick together as waves of protests escalate around them in their neighborhood near Tahrir Square during the first chaotic days of the Egyptian Revolution. Armed with cameras and focused determination, directors Omar Shargawi and Karim El Hakim take to the streets to capture historic events out of view of the world’s media. Told from inside the Revolution in dramatic first person, 1/2 Revolution is a fast-paced handheld thriller that makes the audience feel that they too are on a ride of a lifetime.

Screened at Sundance Film Festival in 2012 and at over 40 major international film festivals, 1/2 Revolution won Best Documentary Film at this year's Aljazeera Documentary Film Festival and the Audience Award at this year's Karama Human Rights Film Festival in Amman, Jordan. 

The Directors will be present for a short Q&A after the screening.

Doors open at 8:30pm.
Free Entrance
Tea and Karkade are served
