I Am the People (Je suis le peuple)
Dir. Anna Roussillon. France/Egypt, 2014, 110 min. New York premiere. Far from Cairo’s Tahrir Square, where throngs of protesters agitate for sweeping political change, poor villagers in the Egyptian south monitor the situation on TV and in daily newspapers, unaffected by the tumult in every practical sense yet also keenly aware of what it could all mean. Intimate, engaging, and humorous, I Am the People finds wisdom and community where most films wouldn’t even think to look for it.
