Told through the eyes of struggling 35 year-old tour guide Kais, an astute observer of Yemen’s political changes, The Reluctant Revolutionary is an intimate portrait of Yemen as the revolution unfolds, captured intimately from the perspective of someone who turns from government supporter to passionate protester. Filmed over a year, with access to a country where no other journalists or filmmakers were permitted, we witness Kais' journey, first appearing as a pro-President citizen, but later lining up alongside angered protesters in Sana'a’s increasingly bloody streets.
Also showing as part of our Sean McAllister retrospective (Sat 03/11- Sun 04/11): A Syrian Love Story, Japan: A Story of Love and Hate, A Northern Soul + director Q&A
