The Square is a beautifully moving, but also highly upsetting documentary. The disgusting behavior of the government towards the protestors, to eventual revolutionaries disturbed me in many moments--but the strength of conviction, and sacrifice of those standing against oppression was quite powerful stuff to witness. Give it a shot! Not easy viewing, though, featuring some quite difficult to watch scenes of violence--but if you followed this story back in 2011 and onward, this is a great insider look at what occurred in Tahrir Square, of the people who stood their ground there for the future of their country, and the stories of how it's effect shaped their lives during this revolution. Watch it!
