We Are Egyptian Armenians is a message of tolerance and acceptance of the others. It outlines Egypt during the time when it opened its doors to people from all over the world to live, work and share their culture with the society they live in.
Through the Armenians who came to Egypt after the Massacres of 1915 we follow the stories that were shared and transmitted from generation to generation.
This documentary shows (90 min) how Egypt gave the Armenians equal rights as citizens and allowed them to preserve their language, culture and heritage by building their own schools, sporting clubs and churches. Furthermore it demonstrates how the Armenians contributed to the Egyptian social and economic life by giving their best to their new homeland.
