The Oscar-Nominated The Square On DVD!
Nominated for ‘Best Documentary’ at the 2014 Academy Awards®, THE SQUARE will be available on DVD in the UK from 14 JULY 2014 and to celebrate, we have two DVDs to give away!
A film by Jehane Noujaim, THE SQUARE details the incredible sacrifices made by a group of Egyptian activists as they battle regimes and risk their lives during the revolution, giving us a personal view of the conflict from the ground since the country’s overthrow of a 30 year dictatorship in 2011.
The Egyptian Revolution has been an ongoing roller coaster. Through the news, we only get a glimpse of the bloodiest battle, an election, or a million man march. At the beginning of August 2013, we witnessed the second president deposed within the space of three years.
THE SQUARE is a truly immersive experience, transporting the viewer deeply into the intense emotional drama and personal stories behind the news. It is the inspirational story of young people claiming their rights, struggling through multiple forces: from a brutal army dictatorship willing to crush protestors with military tanks, to corrupt a Muslim Brotherhood using mosques to manipulate voters.
If you’d like to try and win one of the two The Square DVDs that we’ve got to give away, answer the question below and fill in your details, then press submit! The competition closes on July 25th 2014, so get answering and good luck!
