“For the first time in history, citizens are recording an actual revolution in real time. Throughout the 18 days of the 2011 uprising—in the year since—and now—Egyptians are filming pivotal events on their cell phones, taking pictures, texting, tweeting and facebooking their extraordinary bid for freedom.

Now, “18 Days in Egypt”, the collaborative documentary project, aims to capture the events of the revolution right here… in an interactive documentary website that everyone can access now and into the future.

“18 Days in Egypt” is being powered by GroupStream, an innovative new platform for group storytelling. GroupStream believes the best stories are told together.

Here, at 18DaysinEgypt.com, you will be able to access stories from the revolution in a whole new way.”
