Recommend this film

Crop is an absorbing account of the Egyptian revolution of 2011 – one that includes no images of the popular uprising itself. Filmed entirely within the offices of Al-Ahram, the country’s largest state-run newspaper, the film is a series of carefully composed tableaux that expose the institution’s functioning and the former regime’s strict control over information. To explain what we are seeing, a photojournalist, who missed the revolution because he was in the hospital, provides voiceover narration. With their formal mastery and perceptive framing, Johanna Domke and Marouan Omara inspire us to think about the power of images.
