Jehane Noujaim’s The Square snared the Best Feature trophy at the IDA Documentary Awards earlier this month, just days after it made the Oscar shortlist. The film, which also is up for a Spirit Award, chronicles the Egyptian protest movement from the 2011 overthrow of military leader Hosni Mubarak through the ousting of Mohammed Morsi in 2013. It is the first documentary picked up by Netflix. Check out the trailer:
