WE ARE EGYPT: THE STORY BEHIND THE REVOLUTION is an original feature documentary from disinformation. Months before the momentous uprising in Egypt many talked of a revolution -- no one knew when that day would come. Going beyond the headlines, this story -- filmed in the fourteen months leading to the Revolution -- highlights the years of mounting resentment against the ruling regime.

Embedded inside the turmoil, filmmaker Lillie Paquette followed key opposition figures and young democracy activists as they struggled against extraordinary odds and at great personal risk to remove an uncompromising U.S.-backed authoritarian regime determined to stay in power.
