Twenty minutes after Mubarak gave up power, filmmaker Ramy Rizkallah grabbed his camera and hit the streets to document the historic moment.

Rizkallah writes that for “the first time in 7000 years or more, Egyptians peacfully were able to overthrow their Dictator. No one in Egypt could’ve imagined this happening. I shot this 20 minutes after the VP announced the president’s departure, people are chanting that the army and the people are one hand and the army closed the road to help people celebrate. I just witnessed history.”
