About the Film

January 2011 - downtown Cairo - a close-knit group of friends struggle to stay alive and stick together as waves of protests escalate around them in their neighborhood near Tahrir Square during the first chaotic days of the Egyptian Revolution. Armed with cameras and focused determination, directors Omar Shargawi and Karim El Hakim take to the streets to capture a view of the revolution unlike any other. Shot from street level and featuring stunning on-the-ground footage of history in the making, 1/2 REVOLUTION is one of a kind real-life action thriller.
