Take 5 with..."Uprising"

Frederik Stanton
As we gear up for the 10th anniversary Oxford Film Festival, we are asking all of our filmmakers just a few quick questions to learn more about them and their film. Meet Fredrik Stanton, director/producer/writer of "Uprising."

#1: In 140 characters or less, describe your movie and why someone should see it.

"Uprising" tells the inside story of the Egyptian revolution and gives the authoritative behind-the scenes view of one of the most dramatic events of our generation.

#2: Biggest lesson learned in getting the film made? Best part in getting the film made?

If you have a powerful story all other obstacles are surmountable.

#3: Tell us about you. What is your movie making background?
This is my first film. I've always been interested in international affairs, and prior to this I had written a book titled "Great Negotiation: Agreements that Changed the Modern World."

#4: What's your dream distribution plan for the film?
Wide theatrical and television.

#5: What does the future hold in store for your film and for you?
"Uprising" will be broadcast across the Middle East by the satellite channel Al Hurra to commemorate the second anniversary of the Arab Spring, and we are exploring additional outlets and platforms as well.
