A FALCON, A REVOLUTION

Directed by Md Rezwan Al Islam and Jassim Al Rumaihi
SHORT DOCUMENTARY 6 Minutes North American Premiere
FILM GUIDE A FALCON, A REVOLUTION
This film offers a different perspective on the Arab Spring, giving the audience the opportunity to experience the Egyptian revolution from the eyes of a Bedouin falcon trainer who sees the regime fall from afar and speaks of how falconry and government are similar. It also gives voice to many who didn't contribute much during the revolution but are part of the process nonetheless.
