Film Screening at UPEI – Nasser’s Republic: The Making of Modern Egypt

The Arab Spring and its aftermath are his legacy. “Nasser’s Republic” (80 minutes) is the first film about him for a North American audience. Academy-Award-winning filmmaker Michal Goldman will be present for a discussion following the screening. Sponsored by the Department of History, UPEI, this event is free and open to the public.
