Omar Robert Hamilton - Écrivain, vidéaste

We won't know what the result of the egyptian revolution is for a very long time! Omar Robert Hamilton


Anglo-Egyptian, Omar Robert Hamilton grew up in London. In 2011, as Egypt rose up against the Mubarak regime, he moved to Cairo and cofounded the Mosireen collective. They freely posted photos, videos, and documented demonstrations, the daily struggles and police abuse. This sense of urgency, this courage, this intensity and their shattered hopes are the plot of his first novel, The City Always Wins, which, after gaining acclaim in the Anglo Saxon world, is published by Gallimard, in partnership with the FIFDH. Omar Robert Hamilton has also published numerous articles in The Guardian and The London Review of Books, and founded the Ramallah Literature Festival.
