Documentary (24min.)

This documentary portrays Egypt's Coptic Christian community in the aftermath of IS' increased attacks on churches accross the country in 2017. It shows how victims of attacks make sense of the violence within a characteristic, theological Coptic narrative, while also offering analysis of sectarianism and the role of the state by political and civil rights activists (Maspiru Youth Union).The film's narrative ends by introducing young musicians and showing how they translate their feelings and thoughts about being part of the Coptic minority into their art.
