"In Tahrir Square": HBO Doc on Egypt’s Revolution Through Eyes of Democracy Now!’s Sharif Kouddous | Democracy Now!

Hosted by Amy Goodman

Democracy Now! correspondent Sharif Abdel Kouddous is the central character in the new HBO documentary airing tonight, In Tahrir Square: 18 Days of Egypt’s Unfinished Revolution. The film chronicles the uprising though the reporting of Kouddous, and it looks at what the protest meant for his uncle, Mohamed Abdel Quddoos, a longtime Egyptian dissident who was arrested dozens of times by the Mubarak regime. We’re joined by Kouddous in Cairo, as well as the team behind the film: Jon Alpert and Matthew O’Neill of Downtown Community Television; and independent filmmaker Jacquie Soohen of Big Noise Films.
