Cairo, January 25, 2013: On the second anniversary of the revolution, women are exposed to numerous sexualized acts of violence at Tahrir Square. As a result, crowds of enraged women go out on the streets. The camera in director Samaher Alqadi hands functions as a kind of protective shield as she begins to document the growing rebellion of feminists in her country. The film essay As I Want is an important and unsparing political document: It is an inner journey combining the emancipation of the individual and collective liberation processes in the Arab world.
