Testimonies

A documentary that captures fragments of the lives of the Egyptian Jewish community in the first half of the twentieth century until their second grand exodus after the tripartite attack of 1956 .. An attempt to understand the change in the identity of the Egyptian society that turned from a society full of tolerance and acceptance of one another .. and how it changed gradually by mixing religious and political views into a society that rejects the others .. a film about the cosmopolitan Egypt in the 40's and Egypt in the new millennium .. how did the Jews of Egypt turn in the eyes of Egyptians from partners in the same country to enemies!!
Produced by: Haitham Al-Khamissi
Directed by: Amir Ramses
فيلم وثائقي يرصد مقتطفات من حياة الجالية اليهودية المصرية في النصف الأول من القرن العشرين حتى نزوحهم الكبير خارج مصر بعد العدوان الثلاثي عام 1956 .. محاولة لفهم التغيير في هوية المجتمع المصري الذي تحول من مجتمع مليء بالتسامح وقبول الآخر .. وكيف تغير تدريجياً بخلط الآراء الدينية والسياسية في مجتمع يرفض الآخر .. فيلم عن مصر الكوزموبوليتانية في الأربعينيات ومصر في الألفية الجديدة .. كيف تحول يهود مصر في عيون المصريين من شركاء في نفس الرطن إلى أعداء!!
