I Am the People

A look at the tumultuous events of Egypt’s revolutionary recent past from the point of view of a family living far from Tahir Square, I AM THE PEOPLE is a profound act of cinematic humanism. Few films have so deftly placed world-altering political upheavals in the context of real people’s lives the way Roussillon’s first feature does. Villagers work, make bread to eat and then sharply debate the potential consequences of Mubarak’s fall and the election of Morsi, which all plays out on their TV’s. Roussillon’s eye for unexpected beauty and her easy, playful, sometimes feisty relationship with her subjects make this one of the most radical, quietly surprising debuts in recent memory.
