      Hi Patric,

      Thanks for reaching out. We are continuing to work on the film and follow Shimaa's experience. She has returned to Egypt. While the elections seemed like a possible ending to the story, it is now clear it is only another difficult milestone along the way, and some of her friends and colleagues have been killed or detained in the recent fighting.

      In the short term, a short version of the film, focused specifically on the experience in Tahrir Square, has played at the Media that Matters film festival, among other venues, and you can see Shimaa profiled.

      Here is a link

      We'll be sending other updates shortly, as well as the kickstarter rewards!

      Thanks for thinking of us, and look forward to keeping you updated on how things are going.

      From a recent event we all attended and that to this project, Song from Francesco De Gregori called "La Storia"…

      We are the history, no one should be offended
      We are this lawn of needles under the sky
      We are the history, pay attention
      No one is excluded

      We are the history
      We are these waves in the sea
      This noise that breaks the silence
      This silence so hard to tell

      But the history doesn't stop
      In front of one door
      The history enters inside the rooms, it burns them
      The history can be wrong but it also can be right

      We are the history
      We are the ones who write the letters
      We are the ones who have everything to win
      Or everything to lose

      People make history
      When it comes to choosing and going
      You find them with their eyes wide open
      Because they know well what they're doing

      Those who have read millions of books
      And those who don't even know to speak
      And that's why history gives chills
      Because no one can change it

      We are the history
      We are fathers and sons
      We are the ones that goes

      The history doesn't have secrets
      The history doesn't let you aside
      We are the history
      We are these plates of wheat
