'Voices of Freedom: Egypt' is an emotional, artistic and experiential look at the pro-democracy movement in Egypt - as seen through the eyes of the activists that have risked their lives to bring democracy to their country. This film was made by a team led by director Miriam Mendelson, PhD, who spent months in Egypt during and after the June 30th revolution and subsequent removal of the Muslim Brotherhood backed government - including the violent crackdown that followed. Through interviews, on the scene footage, music art and poetry it gives an in-depth look at the spirit, struggles and vision of the pro-democracy movement that is currently sending ripples and shock-waves throughout the region. This film (and the people who speak in it) does not oversimplify a complex situation, but allows the activists themselves to ask the hard questions as well as articulate their enduring hopes for the future of themselves and their country. It is a film not only about Egypt, but about the eternal human struggle for freedom and dignity.
