Netflix Unveils Trailer for Doc ‘The Square’

Netflix has released a trailer for its upcoming documentary, “The Square.”

“The Square” is an epic documentary that tells the behind-the-headlines story of the Egyptian Revolution through the eyes of young activists who have sought for the last two years to build a better Egypt.

The film, Netflix’s first major documentary in years, won this year’s Toronto International Film Festival Documentary People’s Choice Award and the Audience Award at the Montreal International Documentary Festival. It is considered by many to be a legit contender for this year’s Oscars.
