The Coptic Grave The Video


 

This documentary film is inspired by the story of Kuriakose, a Coptic Egyptian who had lived in my predominantly Muslim village for years. The documentary will follow the life of this minority Christian family and explore the trail of the man and his life and death that ended in the Muslim cemetery. His story will be intercut with flashbacks from my own past and present as a minority Muslim living in the US, visiting the same places, talking to people there. As these two stories are woven together a new story will emerge – the story of those who lived in this peaceful rural Egyptian village of 5,000 people.
