My love for you, Egypt, increases by the day (single—channel video, 2011)  On January 27th 2011 Egyptian authorities succeeded in shutting down the country’s international Internet access points in response to growing protests. Over one weekend, a group of programmers developed a platform called Speak2Tweet that would allow Egyptians to post their breaking news on Twitter via voicemail despite Internet cuts. The result was thousands of heartfelt messages from Egyptians recording their emotions by phone.

This experimental film presents a selected Speak2Tweet message of a man professing his love to Egypt on February 8, 2011 prior to the fall of the Mubarak regime and juxtaposes it with the abandoned structures that represented the long-lasting effects of a corrupt dictatorship.
