Filming Revolution London Launch at the Whitechapel


We had a London launch of the website at the Whitechapel Gallery on 14 January 2016. Billed as a ‘five years on’ reflection about the Egyptian Revolution, we nonetheless limited our discussion, for the most part, to questions tied to filmmaking. After formally presenting the website, Alisa Lebow was joined in conversation by Khalid Abdalla, a key participant in the project. We also looked at some examples of projects contained in the website, including Jasmina Metwaly and Philip Rizk’s Reflections on 25 Jan, and the trailer for Marouan Omara and Johanna Domke’s film Crop.
