CROP (Documentary Trailer)

CROP is an experimental documentary co-directed by Johanna Domke (DE) and Marouan Omara (EG). The film reflects upon the impact of images in the Egyptian Revolution in 2011 and puts it in relation to the image politics of Egypt´s leaders. Instead of showing footage from the revolution, the film is shot entirely in the power domain of images – Egypt´s oldest and most influential state newspaper Al Ahram. Throughout the building – from the top-level executive office towards the smallest worker – we follow the story of a photo-journalist, that missed the revolution due to a hospital stay. After resuming his work in the newspaper, his life seems not quite the same. His voice gives a personal reflection to the media ploys of the old regime, and the documentary inspires to think about the power of images.
