The Battle of Mohamed Mahmoud

These are two video rushes from the recent unrest in Cairo as the country began the long and much contested road into the national elections. The first film was shot at night and the police cut the power to Mohamed Mahmoud street. This led to some complicated and dangerous filming, overcoming pitch black sections of the street, a hail of unknown gas and live rounds fired from an unseen enemy less than fifty metres away.

The second rush follows protestors as they battle with police on Mohamed Mahmoud street for the fifth day on 23 November, eventually pushing the police back to the Interior Ministry and a ceasefire being put in place. That cease fire lasted about two hours.
