Talk:Jehane Noujaim

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search


I saw this film maker being interviewed on CNN today and I sought more info at her Wikipedia page. I thought it was interesting that the article has been up for seven years and remains a stub. I wondered how old she was and found a birth date of 5/17/74 from multiple sources. They may have simply copied each other and are not considered RS, the main one being IMDB. That d.o.b. fits with her schooling timeline. I also found two different birthplaces listed, both Washington, D.C. and Cairo, though both cited the same birthdate. Her most recent work, "The Square," about the uprising focused in Tahrir Square, documented the overthrow of Hosni Mubarak in 2011, but as it was being completed and scheduled to be shown at Sundance Film Festival, the elected president Mohamed Morsi was toppled after a year in office in July 2013 and the Egyptian military re-assumed power. This caused Noujaim to redo the documentary. She was arrested during the Tahrir Square demonstrations. I hope someone will give this page the attention it deserves as she is a person of some substantial cultural and historical consequence. Activist (talk) 21:36, 2 March 2014 (UTC)

Peer Review[edit]

Your information is well organized and fairly detailed, especially when talking about the films she has made and her accomplishments. However, you could make a few improvements in order to make the page more visually appealing and easier to read. It might help to remove the links to pages that don't exist in order to make the text easier to read. You could also expand on the awards Noujaim has received, like the Gardiner Fellowship and the TED Prize, as some people might not automatically know what these things are. You should also add a filmography section (either a list or a table) that lists all of her films in chronological order. The Pangea Day section could also either be expanded upon or combined with another section, as the information presented doesn't feel complete enough to warrant its own section.

Good job, I would have liked to see the filmography neatly displayed in a table for ease of access. — Preceding unsigned comment added by MovieMania1994 (talkcontribs) 20:26, 2 March 2016 (UTC)
