The Reluctant Revolutionary

Issue No. 2294

Kais is a tour guide in Yemen’s capital city Sanaa. He is steadily drawn into the revolutionary movement engulfing the country, despite his initial cynicism.

This Storyville documentary by Sean McAllister offers an inside account of how the Arab Spring has shaped the lives of people in Yemen.

It was filmed over the course of last year, with the crew remaining in place even as other foreign journalists were expelled from the country.
