From Behind the Monument

Jasmina Metwaly

Egypt

16'

2013

The film is an ode to Mohamed Mahmoud Street in Cairo, and the battle that happened there between protesters and riot police in 2011. Questioning the role of the spectator, Metlawy focuses on the aftermath of an event, and the reality of a now-abstracted space where political images are turned into spectacles of reality.
