Egypt takes turmoil films to Berlinale

The annual film festival in Germany is showcasing several secretly shot films about country's uprising.

    Films examining the political turmoil in Egypt are featuring heavily at this year's Berlin Film Festival.

    Several films were shot discreetly due to growing fears over speech and press freedom in Egypt.

    Berlinale is one of the world's most prominent silver screen festivals.
