CROP is a 45 minutes experimental documentary. The film analyzes the role of images in the Egyptian revolution and puts it into historic perspective with the image politics of Egypts leaders. The idea of framing, that originates in a pharaonic architectural feature of representation, conceptualizes the mechanisms of state controlled media and contrasts the use and distribution of images taken by the general public during the riots. Crop questions what becomes part and what stays outside the frame in the shaping of history.
The film is shot entirely in the location of Al-Ahram, Egypts biggest state newspaper. It contrasts the executive floors of the building with the employee and workers sector. The audio track is composed out of interviews with writer and media theorist Maria Golia and photographer Yasser Alwan. While the audio gives an analysis of the historic and social change of the relation to images and the social media revolution the visual side follows the anachronistic process of a newspaper production.
