How to Play a Gig in a Revolution
31st August 2018 by Will Stewart
A short documentary; Disillusioned with the gig circuit at home, London based band I.R.O.K. traveled to Cairo, Egypt, to witness the aftermath of the revolution and try and play some shows for the locals. Despite nobody there knowing their music, having hardly any contacts and receiving numerous warnings about going out after dark, the band persevered and had a genuinely life changing experience. I directed shot and edited the film. Shot on a cannon 60D with a 30mm 1.4 Sigma lens and an old VHS camera.
