NASSER'S REPUBLIC: THE MAKING OF MODERN EGYPT

One of the Arab world’s most transformative leaders who challenged Western hegemony abroad, and confronted Islamism at home.


A young Egyptian army officer leads a coup against his king, winning the support of millions of his countrymen. Over the next 18 years he becomes the most powerful leader of the Arab world, transforming it forever. Now that world confronts his legacy.

Producer Michal Goldman began work on this project before the January 2011 uprisings in Egypt and continued filming through General Sisi’s first year in power. During this period of turmoil, Egyptians argued passionately about their history as a way to see what course to follow in the future. It is their voices – peasants and professors, secularists and Islamists –that drive this film.
