    Revolution Hijacked
    (2011, Documentary, 28 min)
    This documentary was prepared by ABC Australia,
    and distributed by Journeyman Pictures.
    It shows protests in streets of Cairo as well as short
    interviews with some of the key activists in Egypt
    discussing the irony of transitioning to democracy
    under military rule in Egypt. The movie gives us an
    insight into the troubled transition that started with
    Egypt’s great revolution in January 2011, which
    succeeded in ousting Mubarak.

    “You know the army council is
    trying to kill the revolution,” says
    Bothaina Kamel, presidential candidate, quoted in the
    movie.
