I am the People

While the Egyptian people rose up and showed their displeasure at the Tahrir Square in Cairo, many people in the remote areas followed the events via television. The geographical distance between Cairo and farmers in the Nile Valley becomes in I am the People an allegory of different perspectives to politics and democracy in urban and rural areas.
– We can not eat democracy for breakfast, says farmer Farraj. Through his eyes, we get to learn that in fact very little has changed in everyday life despite the dramatic events on the political scene.
