Egyptian Contemporary Film Series
The Virgin, the Copts and Me
A French-based Egyptian Coptic Christian filmmaker, Namir, takes his camera to his parents' home country to explore the much discussed apparitions of the Virgin Mary. In this endearing documentary about returning to ones roots, interrogating the past, the often futile pursuit of truth in faith, Namir captures a side of Egyptian life that often goes unexplored. Things take a turn for the hilarious when the filmmaker asks his relatives in an Asyut village to reenact the Virgin Mary's apparition for his film.
Each film will be followed by a brief discussion moderated by Dr. Adel Iskandar.
