Film Screening & Discussion: Alwan & 3rd i NY Present: The Uprising: the Arab Revolutions from the Inside

Thursday, June 12, 2014
7 – 9PM

The Uprising prvides an exploration of the Arab revolutions from the inside. It is a multi-camera, first-person account of that fragile, irreplaceable moment when life ceases to be a prison, and everything becomes possible again.This feature-length documentary is composed entirely of videos made by citizens and long-term residents of Tunisia, Egypt, Bahrain, Libya, Syria and Yemen. The film uses this footage, not to recount the actual chronology of events or analyse their causes, but to create an imaginary pan-Arab uprising that exists (for the moment) only on the screen.
