The authors

This documentary is an idea of Tommaso Dradi, who has lived in Egypt and loves Egypt. He followed the arab revolutions since their beginning to their development, when he eventually decided to engage in reporting some pictures from the egyptian reality. He has prepared all the interviews, and couldn’t stop to ask questions even off air. He has developed the story, selected the topics and edited the whole video. He also composed and performed the original soundtrack of the documentary.

Katia Cazzola has further developed the documentary idea by identifying subjects, locations, and characters to be included in the video shootings. She took care of the photography either with the camcorder and with her camera,  collecting many beautiful stills across all the egyptian tour.

Amany El Miligy
A longtime screenwriter based in Cairo, and former lawyer, Amany has conducted most of the interviews in Egypt; her trust in egyptian people and passion for the subject of revolution has brought a great deal of enthusiasm on the set. Beyond her invaluable help onsite,  she gave an important contribution  sorting all the material in arabic language and reviewing the translations. The staff managed to stole an interview from Amany, so her opinion is also represented in the documentary, not only behind the curtains.
