Ahmed Nour / Feature Documentary / Egypt, Morocco, Qatar / 2013 / 70 min / Colour / Original Language: Arabic / Interests: Animation, Politics, Social Issues, Youth, Creative Documentary


Before he came to power, a fortune teller told Hosni Mubarak that he would reach a powerful position in Egypt – but that he would lose all his power in a place called Suez. On January 25, 2011, the Egyptian revolution was sparked in Suez City, even before it reached Tahrir Square. Through his personal story of the past 30 years, the director tells of a generation of Egyptian revolutionaries who ousted Mubarak – and later Mohamed Morsi – from power; a revolution that was born in the 80s during the early years of Mubarak’s rule in Suez.
