Une Arme de Choix is a 43-minute documentary by Florence Tran.

The film sheds light on a few Egyptian directors who used their cameras as weapons during the 18 days that ousted Hosni Mubarak in January/February 2011. The directors take action through their cameras and as such participate in the long and difficult process of transforming Egypt.

Filmed between May and December 2011, the documentary brings to light differing visions and understandings of 2011's momentous events.

Une Arme de Choix presents directors Ibrahim El-Batout, Ayten Amin, Wael Omar, Khaled Abdalla, Amr Salama, Mohamed Diab and Karim El-Shenawy.

The screening of the movie will be followed by a discussion attended by film's director, Florence Tran, as well as directors Ibrahim El-Batout and Wael Omar.
