Rags And Tatters
Escaping after years of incarceration, a nameless man tries to find his way home amid the turbulence of the Tahrir
Square demonstrations in a Cairo turned upside down by the protests of the Egyptian Revolution of 2011. As he rejoins the family and the country he has been separated from for so long, he finds that everything about life as he knew it has changed irrevocably.

"During the sit-in in Tahrir Square, I personally volunteered at what was known as the Media Camp which is a tent built in the square to collect footage from mobile phones and cameras of the protestors and revolutionaries, while other volunteers archived and organized the footage before sending it to international stations... I found myself spontaneously drawn to the idea of using similar filming techniques... to create a new visual style of storytelling."
