During the Iraq war, U.S. Chief Warrant Officer Roy Miller leads Mobile Exploitation Team-Delta (MET-D) on a fruitless search of suspected WMD sites. When he wonders out loud why the intelligence is all wrong, he's told not rock the boat. Soon Miller, working with a local Iraqi informant named Freddy, is going after a Ba'athist general named Al-Rawi. CIA agent Martin Brown and journalist Lawrie Dayne share Miller's doubts; each have some pieces to the puzzle. They try to help Miller out, but Department of Defense official Clark Poundstone treats the WMD problem like a PR kerfuffle. When a Delta Force squad is dispatched to intimidate him and shut his team down, Miller's questioning mutates into a quest: to learn the identity and motives of "Magellan," the highly protected source of this faulty information

"From the 2011 overthrow of a 30-year dictator, through military rule, and culminating with the forced military removal of the Muslim Brotherhood president in the summer of 2013, we follow a group of Egyptian activists as they battle leaders and regimes, and risk their lives to build a new society of conscience. The Egyptian Revolution has been an ongoing roller coaster. Through the news, we only get a glimpse of the bloodiest battle, an election, or a million man march. At the beginning of August 2013, we witnessed the second president deposed within the space of three years. The Square is a truly immersive experience, transporting the viewer deeply into the intense emotional drama and personal stories behind the news. It is the inspirational story of young people claiming their rights, struggling through multiple forces: from a brutal army dictatorship willing to crush protesters with military tanks, to a corrupt Muslim Brotherhood using mosques to manipulate voters. The activists in our film are armed with nothing more than cameras, social media, videos posted to YouTube, and a resolute determination to liberate their nation. The film is made in a cinéma vérité style, giving us an up-close view of revolution from the ground. New technologies show us that the voice of young people cannot be silenced in this digital age. Our characters are fighting an ancient war with new weapons"--Film press notes

"The Square offers a truly unique insight into the human stories behind the political and social upheaval of revolution. Filmed on the ground during the Egyptian uprising, The Square explores far beyond the million man marches and bloody battles shown on international news, and is a truly immersive experience, transporting the viewer deeply into the intense emotional drama and personal stories never normally heard. It is the inspirational story of young people claiming their rights and struggling through multiple forces: from a brutal army dictatorship willing to crush protestors with military tanks, to the corrupt Muslim Brotherhood using mosques to manipulate voters. A multiple festival award winner and Oscar nominated documentary, The Square is an unmissable insight into the heart of the Arab Spring."--Container
