Directed by Namir Abdel Messeeh | 2011
“Groundbreaking! Undoubtedly a labor of love…”
—The Huffington Post

Blending elements of narrative and documentary, this heartfelt meditation on the roots of religious faith and cultural heritage centers on the French-Egyptian filmmaker’s journey to Cairo to investigate the apparitions of the Virgin Mary witnessed by his mother and hundreds of thousands of other Coptic Christians. Finding a connection with his long-lost relatives and their rural life, Messeeh comes to a deeper understanding of the ever-dwindling minority community to which his family belongs, a quest that yields moments of humor and spiritual insight.

In Arabic and French with English subtitles
