A co-production between Endless Eye filmmakers Sean Fahey & Jeremiah Hammerling and Alef Lam Mim's Ahmed Rehab, Laith Saud, & M. Yaser Tabbara, Beyond Tahrir follows the life of several activists both during and after the revolution. Our activists come from a wide variety of political backgrounds. Gehad Saif is a nationalist focused on social equity; his passion and charisma is contagious. We will follow him into his production studio where his ideals are transformed into hip-hop. But on the other side, we glean into the world of the Muslim Brotherhood and get a sense of their roots in Egypt and the diversity of their members. Along the way we meet artists like Hany Adel, who discusses the inspiration of the people and how important it was to give music back. Beyond Tahrir is dedicated to fulfilling the vision of the revolution according to the ideals of the revolution itself—democratically.
