Cancelled: Screening – Goodbye Mubarak

Screening August 1, 2011 7:00 PM

Goodbye Mubarak examines the anger and discontent brewing in Egypt before people took to the streets on 25 January and ousted President Hosni Mubarak 18 days later.

Filmed in late 2010, Goodbye Mubarak shows the impact of the November legislative elections and the sense of outrage amid charges of ballot stuffing, bullying and dirty tricks by Mubarak’s National Democratic Party.

Showing Cairo’s residents just months before the protests and 18-day occupation of Tahrir Square, Katia Jarjoura’s new film reveals the extent to which everything was in place for revolution to happen.

Directed by Katia Jarjoura
