Filming Revolution is an interactive data-based documentary archive about independent and documentary filmmaking in Egypt since the revolution.
Bringing together the collective wisdom and creative strategies of media-makers in Egypt, before during and after the revolution, the website consists of 30 interviews, edited thematically, with Egyptian filmmakers, artists, activists and archivists, talking about their work and their ideas about how (and whether) to make films in the time of revolution.
This project represents and attempt to integrate theory and practice, and more particularly to ‘practice’ film scholarship interactively.
This project was funded by the Leverhulme Trust and additional support provided by University of Sussex.
