>> EVENING PROGRAM:
>>
>> Revolutionary Archives: Tactical Screenings from Tahrir
>>
>> Screening & talk with Omar Robert Hamilton: Friday September 30, De
>> Balie, Amsterdam, 20.30 hrs
>>
>> In the midst of the Egyptian uprising Tahrir Cinema was started on July
>> 14th by a group of film makers and artists, organising open air public
>> screenings on Tahrir Square, of films that had something to do  with
>> 'the Revolution'. Curation of the films was largely open source. The
>> organisers asked people on the square for their footage, or what they
>> wanted to see up on the screen - "a screen to serve the square".
>>
>> Out of this frenzy of media-activity Mosireen emerged, a new independent
>> media centre in Cairo. During the protests Mosireen supported people on
>> Tahrir Square to edit their materials, created DVDs with raw footage and
>> clips, and set up an archive of the Revolution.
>>
>> This special screening program organised in the frame of "Media Squares"
>> program at De Balie will present a selection of videos and films from
>> Tahrir Cinema in collaboration with Mosireen, Cairo. The screening will
>> be hosted and narrated by Omar Robert Hamilton, one of the initiators of
>> Tahrir Cinema, and Nat Muller, independent curator based in The
>> Netherlands.
