Poster Boy

Behind the images that sparked the Arab revolution

Directed by Jules Williamson | Produced by Jules Williamson and Andrea Cornwell

Poster Boy explores the person behind the images that sparked the Arab Spring revolution in Egypt. In 2010 the images of Khaled Said before and after his murder by the secret police were posted on Facebook, beginning the protests that ended with the toppling of Mubarak. The film will look at the extraordinary journey of his family, as their son and brother is turned into a modern day martyr for the New Egypt.
