Special note from Jehane Noujaim, Director of The Square (Al Midan)

1 comment

hi everyone! 

its jehane, the director of the film. thank you so much for your thoughts and comments and pledges! this is my auntie sarah writing below... YES, we made it to 700 backers!! 

Thank you everyone for your support for us-- we are a large team of people that have worked together-- been shot at, arrested, jailed to make this happen and to finish this film, and we are able to continue because of people like you. We are so grateful. 

And just yesterday there was a ruling that YOUTUBE is going to be banned in Egypt for a month-- this kind of thing are the steps that we cannot let happen, because curtailing of freedom of speech in one part of the world effects everyone.

 Everyone that has watched the film sees how the struggle of people on the ground in Egypt is so closely linked to our struggle here in the US and around the world... and the support has just been incredible.

- Jehane
