Ultras of Egypt
When protest erupted in the streets of Egypt in 2011, groups of rival football fans found themselves united at the heart of the unrest. Informed by their experiences of resisting the police as football fans, the ultras applied their knowledge to civil protest, forming the formidable militant core of the revolution. With rare access to the supporters at the heart of the revolution, this doc offers an unseen view of the Arab Spring and its fatal consequences for Egypt’s most passionate football fans.
