The Square TIFF

It last screened at the Toronto International Film Festival, and will next screen at the New York Film Festival. After its NYFF premiere, The Square (Al Midan) from director Jehane Noujaim, will open theatrically at the Film Forum theaters here in NYC, on October 25, for a limited run.

A recipient of the Sundance Institute's Documentary Film Program and Fund (DFP) and a grant from Chicken and Egg Pictures, Jehane Noujaim's The Square, follows a short line of recent documentaries (that we know of and have covered) that center on the ongoing Egyptian Revolution, through the fall of Morsi recently. It follows its young protagonists on their life-changing journeys through the euphoria of victory, into the uncertainties and dangers of the ‘transitional period’ under military rule.

Director Noujaim's previous work (which she co-directed with Mona Eldaief), a documentary titled Solar Mamas, was a BBC Storyville selection last year – one of 8 ground-breaking international documentaries that screened in November in 180 countries, that explored why, in the 21st century, 1 billion people still live in poverty.

The Square is produced by Karim Amer and executive produced by Geralyn Dreyfous, Sarah Johnson, Mike Lerner, and Jodie Evans.
