Cairo Downtown

Filmed in 2009, Cairo Downtown presents a cross section of the Egyptian society that inspired the mass protests which led to Mubarak being forced out of power. Young dissidents who use the net as a political weapon, Egyptian bloggers are considered masters of internet activism throughout the Middle East. The film sheds light on Egyptian bloggers and how they are used as platforms to express dissent and carry out political activism.
