Summer Human Rights Film Program: The Noise of Cairo
July 23, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The Noise of Cairo
(56 minutes / Director: Heiko Lange / Producers: Heiko Lange, Alexander von Sturmfeder)
The Noise of Cairo is a cinematic adventure, following the interplay between art and the revolution in Egypt. Protest of any kind was punished violently in pre-revolutionary Egypt and artistic expression was considered nothing but a threat to the status quo. This documentary bears witness to Cairo’s vibrant artistic underbelly, as it raises its voice once again. The artists of Cairo, who refused to quiet down, come together to be heard. These individuals create The Noise of Cairo. This film was screened at the 2013 United Nations Association Film Festival.
