Wednesday, we're rebroadcasting a portrait of activism and unrest from Cairo's Tahrir Square. The film is called "The Square," and it offers a window into the emotional drama and personal stories behind the news. Director JehaneNoujaim describes the young Egyptians she follows as revolutionaries armed with nothing more than social media and YouTube videos. She'll join us to talk about the evolution of a 21st century revolution.
- THE SQUARE has been nominated for an Academy Award, and it will be showing at The Salt Lake Film Society's Tower Theater starting Monday, January 20. For show times and information, click here.
- Due to technical difficulties, our conversation about the film ALIVE INSIDE is being postponed to Friday. In the meantime, you can watch an excerpt from the film at VideoWest. It features Henry, a 94-year-old man who lives in a nursing home in Brooklyn. It reveals the larger point to the film … that music is not only magic but can be a backdoor into the mind.
