Check Out "The Square" Trailer - Film Premieres on Netflix January 17, 2014 at 12:01 AM PT

Jehane Noujaim's gripping front-line portrait of the Egyptian revolution is set to premiere exclusively in all Netflix territories on January 17, 2014 at 12:01 AM PT and in select cities within the United States. A Netflix original documentary, "The Square," is a riveting, deeply human chronicle of the Egyptian protest movement from director/producer Jehane Noujaim ("Control Room"; "Startup.com"; "Rafea: Solar Mama") and producer Karim Amer ("Rafea: Solar Mama").

Winner of this year's Toronto International Film Festival Documentary People's Choice Award and the Audience Award at the Montreal International Documentary Festival, "The Square" is an epic documentary that tells the behind-the-headlines story of the Egyptian Revolution through the eyes of young activists who have sought for the last two years to build a better Egypt. An earlier version of "The Square" won the Audience Award at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. The film was also an Official Selection at the 2013 New York Film Festival.

The film captures the immediacy and intensity of the protests in Tahrir Square from the 2011 overthrow of military leader Hosni Mubarak through the ousting of Mohammed Morsi in 2013, providing a kaleidoscopic, visceral portrait of the events as they unfold before Magdy, a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, Khalid Abdalla, an Egyptian actor who played the lead in "The Kite Runner" and the charismatic Ahmed, whose poetic storytelling carries the narrative. Armed with nothing more than cameras, social media, deep consciousness, and a resolute commitment to change, these young revolutionaries give us a front-line perspective of the ongoing struggle fought with new weapons.
