The Issue

Let me ask you a few simple questions. 

If you are Coptic: Do you introduce yourself as Coptic, or Egyptian? How often has it happened that they genuinely recognize what ‘Coptic’ means? Or are you like me; so pleasantly surprised to see that someone has heard of my people before?

If you are not Coptic: How much do you know about Copts? Does it surprise you that you’ve heard a great deal about the ancient Egyptians and absolutely nothing about their descendants?

The fact is, our history, like our language, has been suppressed while our tongues were being cut out. And out of fear, to ensure our survival, lots of us fled our homeland and formed small communities where we kept to ourselves.

Which inevitably results in the world not knowing who we are. 

What saddens me the most is that even most Copts don’t know much about what our ancestors have been through. 

The Solution

It’s quite simple; I want to tell our story. First, by making a documentary. By doing research and uncovering stories that have long been hidden deep within our churches and monasteries. 

And if possible, making a theatrical film. Imagine a movie like ‘Schindler’s List’, ‘Hotel Rwanda’, or ‘The Promise’  but it tells the story of the Coptic people. To me, that would be a dream come true. 

So, I’m trying to raise money to cover the cost of making this documentary. I, personally, will be volunteering my time and skill to this project.

I appreciate your support, and that you even took the time to read this far. Hopefully that means that you believe in this as much as I do, or that at least you believe in my passion. Please take an extra minute to donate by clicking below.

Thank you so much.
