Nasser's Republic: The Making of Modern Egypt
Michal Goldman
États-Unis | 2016

 

 

 

descriptif

Nasser's Republic, The Making of Modern Egypt (La République de Nasser, la Construction de l'Egypte Moderne) est le premier film américain sur un des leaders du monde arabe qui a conduit le plus de changements. Semblant sortir de nulle part, Gamal Abdel Nasser apparaît très vite comme un symbole du progrès et de la dignité arabes. De 1952 à 1970, il défie l'hégémonie occidental à l'étranger, affronte l'islamisme sur son sol et fait face à de profondes divisions au sein des Arabes. Il créé le premier régime militaire autoritaire de la région. Homme d'un énorme charisme et d'une ambition débordante, Nasser a entamé une révolution dont il ne pouvait voir la concrétisation complète. Mais ses rêves, dilemmes et décisions continuent de peser sur la présente génération.

Nasser's Republic, The Making of Modern Egypt is the first film for an American audience about one of the Arab world's most transformative leaders. Seemingly coming out of nowhere, Gamal Abdel Nasser soon became a symbol of Arab progress and dignity. From 1952 to 1970, he challenged Western hegemony abroad, confronted Islamism at home, and faced deep divisions among the Arabs. He also established the region's first military authoritarian regime. A man of enormous charisma and ambition, Nasser had begun a revolution he could not complete. But his dreams, dilemmas and decisions continue to shape the current generation.
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.

NOTE OF THE PROGRAMMER
"I thought we had buried him," says a contemporary Egyptian historian of Gamal Abdel Nasser. "It turns out he's still alive." The Arab Spring and its aftermath showed just how complicated is the legacy of Egypt's iconic second president (1956 to 1970) who championed Arab progress, African liberation, and resistance to Western colonialism. But what Nasser did not offer was democracy. Instead, he installed the region's first military authoritarian regime. The ongoing dilemma of U.S. policy in the Middle East, the region's major tensions, the struggles between Islamists and Arab states, all trace back to Nasser's story. He may have launched a revolution, but he could not complete it. Director Michal Goldman organizes a vast amount of information to pose as many questions as answers in this immersive documentary. Narration by Palestinian actress Hiam Abbass rivets us to history and its contradictions, a story witnessed by millions.-Judy Bloch (30th Filmfest DC - Washington DC International Film Festival 2016)
