One year after the euphoria of Tahrir Square and Mubarak’s fall, Egypt’s revolution remains incomplete: many continue to suffer from state‐inflicted cruelty. More than 12,000 protesters have been arrested by the army and secret police, sentenced by summary military tribunals, and often tortured. Back to the Square follows five people who have suffered injustice at the hands of the current post-revolutionary military regime. It shows how the systematic use of violence and fear by Mubarak’s regime has continued essentially unchanged after the revolution. Shooting in Egypt since the very beginning of the revolution in January, the creative team of Back to the Square has been inspired by this unprecedented Arab Spring. One year later, we are outraged by daily stories of ongoing basic human rights violations in Egypt.
