In a world rife with political discontentment and seemingly more discord than tolerance, it is easy to lose sight of elements that bring people together. Inspired by a purposeful , yet experimental, idea to inspire people to find their humanity, an Egyptian- Canadian filmmaker invited seven Americans to travel to Egypt on an all-expenses paid vacation for 10 days.
LOS ANGELES — March 26, 2019 — For Immediate Release — Seeking to build a bridge of mutual understanding and friendship, a Canadian-Egyptian entrepreneur of Muslim faith, now living in Switzerland, decides to reach out to the very people who fear him. Traveling across the United States to find Americans concerned about an Islamic threat, Tarek Mounib makes them an intriguing offer … a Free Trip to Egypt.
With five parallel camera crews following the American participants, there ended up being over 250 hours of camera footage. The team had their work cut out for them - how would they cut all these hours into a feature length documentary and still convey the magic of the journey that was experienced.
We have travelled to Egypt and back on a magical journey with our participants.
After an intense search through America and through many wonderful video submissions, Kindness Films has selected the American families who are concerned about an Islamic threat yet willing to embark on a vacation to Egypt to explore and discover what awaits them.
The Kindness Films team was spotted at the Trump Rally in Louisville Kentucky on March 20, 2017. When asked, Kindness Films said they were searching for Americans courageous enough to travel to Egypt and ready for dialogue.
