SUBMITTING A PSA: KUER will select 6-8 calendar submissions from non-profit organizations to rotate on-air for a two-week period. PSAs are selected for on-air inclusion on the basis of community service and appropriateness for KUER’s audience. Because this is a free service to non-profits, on-air broadcast is not guaranteed. KUER reserves the right to remove material that is not conducive to FCC guidelines.
This documentary epic is the result of director Jehane Noujaim (Control Room) and her crew’s dogged chronicling of activism, unrest and revolution in Cairo’s Tahrir Square. For more than two years, Egyptians have turned out in massive numbers to occupy Cairo’s Tahrir Square and demand change from their leaders. During the many dramatic shifts over that time, Noujaim and her crew have captured what’s happened in the square through the eyes of several young revolutionaries. The future of Egypt remains to be seen. But to gain insight on what’s happened so far, The Square is essential viewing.
KUER's Doug Fabrizio will talk to director Jehane Noujaim and producer Karim Amer on RadioWest, October 10. The pair will also be available for a Q&A via Skype following the free screening.
