Egypt: Children of the Revolution

Synopsis
International investigative documentary series. In February 2011, millions of Egyptians came together to bring down President Hosni Mubarak in what became the defining moment of the Arab Spring. This documentary follows three young revolutionaries as their differing visions for the new Egypt begin to collide.

Ahmed Hassan hoped a new Egypt would mean finding work. Socialist activist Gigi Ibrahim’s desire was for an Egypt that would respect freedom for all. Tahir Yasin, tortured in Mubarak’s jails, joined a new ultra-conservative party hoping to realise his vision of Egypt as an Islamic state.
