The Arab Spring — on film and via Twitter

On Tuesday evening, Malmö had its première public showing of Zero Silence, a documentary about the Arab Spring produced by DXF program director Hussain Kabani.

Afterwards, Dr. Reza Arjmand — a visiting professor at the Centre for Middle Eastern Studies at nearby Lund University — moderated a series of three panel discussions with some of the participants at DXF — all of them popular bloggers and Twitter users, knowledgable in the local politics of their home countries: Tunisia, where the revolutions started, Egypt, and finally Syria, where the outcome of the unrest is still far from settled.
