Winter of Discontent

23 Aug 20135 Sep 2013

Winter of Discontent (El sheita elli fat) is set against the momentous backdrop of the whirlwind protests in Cairo's Tahrir Square, beginning on January 25 2011.

Activist Amr, journalist Farah, and State Security officer Adel experience a shifting reality in the days and nights leading up to the resignation of President Mubarak. As the stories of these characters unfold, they are propelled headlong into the heady, often surreal atmosphere of terror, uncertainty, and mass euphoria that surrounded those days that shaped history.
