It’s only been a year since Egypt’s world was turned on it’s head. But what a year it’s been. As we’ve said many times before, Newscom is honored to partner with some of the best in the photography and video business, and this post is no exception. We are pleased to work with Reuters to distribute a multimedia documentary about the Egyptian Revolution produced by Thomson Reuters Foundation (TRF).
From our partners at Reuters:
On 25 January 2011, Egyptian youth took to Cairo’s Tahrir Square to demand basic rights and freedom from decades of authoritarian rule. Within a few days, this protest of thousands grew to millions across the country. One year on, the story is re-lived in “The Egyptian Revolution”, a multimedia documentary produced by Thomson Reuters Foundation (TRF) using Reuters’ award winning text, pictures and video. This content will be published on Jan. 25 on Aswat Masriya, a website created by TRF to give independent and free information to the Egyptian people and media around the elections.
Written and narrated by a former Reuters’ journalist and produced by TRF’s award-winning multimedia team, “The Egyptian Revolution” captures the main events through the personal experience of one Egyptian woman and her family. The sight of Tahrir square on fire, camels charging into protesters and news of cabinet reshuffles and political speeches are interwoven with the Kandil family’s frantic trips to the supermarket for supplies, panic over looters in their neighborhood and cautious hope for the birth of a better Egypt. “The Egyptian Revolution” is produced in English and Arabic and compiled into a three-part chronological series – “The Flood”, “The Clash” and “The Fall”.
On the first anniversary of the Egyptian Revolution, share this unique multimedia project with your audience! The videos in their entirety are available for use now free of charge if clearly credited with a link to Thomson Reuters Foundation (www.trust.org).
