Months before 2011’s momentous uprising in Egypt many talked of a revolution – but no one knew when that day would come. Going behind the headlines, "We are Egypt" – filmed in the 14 months leading up to the Revolution – highlights the years of mounting resentment against the ruling regime.

Deeply embedded inside the turmoil, filmmaker Lillie Paquette followed key opposition figures and young democracy activists as they struggled against extraordinary odds and at great personal risk to remove an uncompromising U.S. -backed authoritarian regime determined to stay in power.
