Whose Country?

Crew
Directed by Mohamed Siam


A young Egyptian filmmaker gains first-hand accounts of corruption and abuse within the security forces from Egyptian police officers. Narrated in English by the filmmaker, Whose Country? reveals not only why police injustice can be considered a leading cause of the 2011 Revolution but also how the perpetuation of injustice within the security force itself led to widespread dissatisfaction amongst the lower ranks. A fascinating look at how victimization of law enforcement on a widespread scale perpetuates injustice throughout a society.

Reviews
