Pharaoh Vs The Egyptians, a powerful and revealing documentary by Australian comedian Akmal Saleh. Born in Egypt, Akmal returns to the country to explore how the people were able to overthrow a dictator in rule for over thirty years.

This film is a documentary outlining the events that led to millions of Egyptians, most of them under the age of thirty, deciding to risk their lives in order to protest against decades of oppression and a brutal regime. It explains the role of social media, told by young activists who were instrumental in coordinating the protests, and how the use of the internet and mobile phones brought millions of people together. The honesty and passion of the people Akmal met and interviewed is completely engaging, as the narrative moves quickly from beginning to end.
