Winner of the Award for BEST DOCUMENTARY at the 2012 Lone Star Film Festival in Forth Worth, of the Award for BEST FEATURE DOCUMENTARY FILM at the 2012 Silicon Valley Film Festival, nominated for for MOST INSPIRATIONAL DOCUMENTARY and BEST DOCUMENTARY at the 2012 Orlando Film Festival and officially selected for a long list of upcoming international Film Festivals, UPRISING is a MUST SEE.
In 2011 first time director Fredrik Stanton did four trips to Egypt to interview the people who brought about the first Revolution of the 21st Century.
As his video equipment was instantly impounded on the very first trip by the Egyptian customs authorities, he had no choice but to make contact with the Egyptian network of independent filmmakers, cameramen/women, producers and journalist who covered the event as it was unfolding.
Here at John Galt Films, we brought to the material to life, editing some 70+ hours of incredible inside-footage and first-hand accounts of Egypt's UPRISING, that forced its brutal dictator of 30 years, Hosni Mubarak, out of office.
Director Fredrik Stanton, producer Alexander Davidis and editor Bill Hamilton are very exited to bring you this feature length documentary that promises to be one of the most inspiring films of the year.
