Still alive

Revolution, where are you? In today’s Egypt, the youth’s aspirations for freedom are being caught between el Sisi’s iron hand and the very necessity to live. Four young Egyptians, who participated in the uprising in 2011, take a look at their own past and share their feelings about their current situation.

What life could be like in this context of violent repression and nationalist propaganda, after this unprecedented momentum of freedom? What legacy – or burden – to carry on for this youth who was at the forefront of the revolt? Still Alive draws an intimate portrait of an emerging generation, its political commitment and shattered dreams.
