Frustrated with biased coverage in state run media, activists are taking matters into their own hands by screening the videos that the ruling military council do not want to be seen.
The decentralised 'Kazeboon' (Liars) movement involves ordinary people downloading videos of military abuses and showing them in the streets of their own neighbourhoods.
The screenings often turn into protest marches, and are regularly attacked by those who oppose the movement and the images showing the brutal side of Egypt's security forces.
