On the 25th of January thousands of Egyptians gathered in the Cairo’s Tahrir Square, sparking what we call now the Egyptian Revolution. Living only a few hundred meters from the world-famous square, the people from popular neighbourhood Bulaq Abu el-Ela took part in the revolt, finding in demonstrations something more than a glimmer of hope. Through the voices of its inhabitants, ‘Bulaq’ portrays their collective struggle against eviction and social marginalisation, whose destiny seems to be strictly intertwined with the hesitant fortunes of the Egyptian spring.
