The Egyptian citizen collective Mosireen  has been tirelessly documenting the #Jan25 revolution and the events that followed in images and documentaries. One of their very last creations is “Prayer of Fear”, a filmpoem by Mahmoud Ezzat narrated by Mosireen member Salma Said . Between roving and painful memories, the filmpoem stuns with its disarming sincerity and humanity.

Or is the path destroyed?…
