Co-directed by Egyptian filmmaker Marwan Omara and German video artist Johanna Domke, “Crop” is an experimental documentary shot entirely within Egypt’s government media mouthpiece Al-Ahram. The 49-minute documentary film reflects upon the images in the 25 January Egyptian revolution, while placing it in relation to the “image politics” of Egypt’s leaders, from former presidents Gamal Abdel Nasser and Anwar Sadat to Mubarak.
