Masr means “Egypt” in Arabic. Ever since I made my first Egypt video 3 years ago, I’ve been wanting to do it all over again. The first video was about Egypt, yes, but it also felt like it was all about me. Well, I’ve tried again and I’ve attempted to create something that captures more of the soul and spirit of this wild and wonderful country.
It’s my hope that this short video both inspires and challenges you. Inspires you to visit this beautiful land and to meet these special people. To challenge you to maybe think differently about Egypt, the Middle East, and the Arab world.
No, this video doesn’t show all, or tell all, but it should give you a little insight into this world that is often misunderstood. This is for Egypt, for Masr, and its people.
Special thanks to Ahmed Hossam for the voice over and to Dina Taher for translating the opening poem for me.
