Screening: Goodbye Mubarak

Screening June 15, 2012 7:00 PM

This screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Katia Jarjoura.

With the presidential elections scheduled at end of May, a possible run-off mid June and the trial verdict of President Hosni Mubarak expected, Goodbye Mubarak goes back to the period before Egypt’s leader was ousted by the people.

The film examines the anger and discontent brewing in the country before people took to the streets on 25 January 2011. Filmed in late 2010, it shows the impact of the November legislative elections and the people’s outrage amid charges of ballot fixing, bullying and dirty tricks by Mubarak’s National Democratic Party.

Having recently travelled back to Egypt for the first time after shooting the film, Katia Jarjoura will share her experience and insight on the current situation in Egypt 18 months after the start of the uprising.
