Return to Tahrir

Return to Tahrir from Oliver Wilkins on Vimeo.

A few weeks back I shared with you Oliver Wilkins’ video of the Egyptian protests. Ollie reached out to me and sent me the above video, a follow-up shot also in Tahrir. This time though it had been a week since Mubarak stepped down and the scene and mood are entirely different. Lovely filmmaking.

From Ollie:

Yesterday Cairo’s Tahrir square was packed as Egyptians celebrated a week since Hosni Mubarak’s Resignation. I went along and took a few shots – wonderful atmosphere, everyone extremely friendly and pleasant. Like a weight lifted from the shoulders.

An excellent day had by all, especially those in the flag business.
