If you want to find out what all the buzz is about, Netflix-acquired film The Square is now available to stream from their Watch Instantly library. And, it may be more than coincidence that the film was launched on Netflix just a day after the official Oscar nominees were announced, listing The Square as nominated for an Oscar in the Best Documentary Feature category.
Directed by Jehane Noujaim, the film documents the Egyptian Revolution through the eyes of young protesters who use cameras, social media, and YouTube to tell their story. The feature-length documentary is in Arabic language, with subtitles available in English and Spanish.
You can find The Square categorized in Netflix’s Documentaries, Foreign Movies, and Foreign Documentaries genres. HD-quality streaming is available for those with adequate bandwidth.
Other documentary films nominated in the category include The Act of Killing, Cutie and the Boxer, Dirty Wars, and 20 Feet from Stardom.
