Bread, freedom, social justice. . . These were the goals of the 2011 revolution known as Arab Spring. In director Gini Reticker's The Trials of Spring (Fork Films, 2015), a multimedia initiative comprising six shorts, the role and stories of women agitating for social change and civil rights in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, Yemen, Bahrain, and Syria, are brought to vivid light. Below is the trailer for the film, whose world premiere takes place June 12 at the Human Rights Watch Film Festival in New York.
