Hiam Abbass as a narrator, Khaled Abol Naga Nasser’s English Voice-Over
In 1952, young Egyptian colonel Gamal Abdel Nasser led a coup that became a revolution. Over the next 18 years, he challenged Western cultural hegemony, confronted Islamism at home, established the region's first military authoritarian regime, and faced deep divisions among the Arabs. A man of enormous charisma and ambition, Nasser had begun a revolution he could not complete. Now Egypt confronts his legacy.
