Esmy Mostafa Khamis (My Name Is Mostafa Khamis)


On July 23, three weeks after the 1952 revolution, workers in Kafr Al Dawar went on strike, demanding an increase in wages and more rights. The uprising was quashed and military courts convicted civilians for the first time in the history of Egypt. Mostafa Khamis and Hasan Albakary were among the workers who were executed. Sixty years later, MY NAME IS MOSTAFA KHAMIS explores the events of the 1952 uprisings, and how the Egyptian workers’ movement was successfully quelled until February 1968, when their voices rose once again.
