In 1952, as an unknown young Egyptian colonel, Nasser led a coup that became a revolution. Over the next 18 years Nasser emerged as a titanic figure, and as a champion of Arab progress and African liberation. But what he could not offer was democracy; instead, he established the region's first and much emulated military authoritarian regime. A man of enormous charisma and ambition, Nasser became caught in the coils of his own power, dying at 52 with many dreams unrealized. The Arab Spring and its aftermath are his legacy. Director Michal Goldman (UMM KULTHUM, A VOICE LIKE EGYPT) filmed NASSER'S REPUBLIC in Egypt between 2011 and 2015. 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. See less
