” The recent political upheaval in Egypt adds a haunting resonance to Amir Ramsis’ illuminating documentary chronicling the period in the first half of the twentieth century when Jewish people were a widely accepted segment of the population before they were systematically expelled from the country in the 1950s. ”  –  March 28, 2014 Full Review
Frank Scheck  – Hollywood Reporter – Top Critic

JEWS OF EGYPT
” One of the darkest chapters in modern Egyptian history is fully exposed in Amir Ramses’ “The Jews of Egypt,” the most accomplished, most important Egyptian non-fiction film of the past five years. ”
-Variety Arabia

This fascinating documentary brilliantly blends interviews and archival footage to recall times of tolerance and inclusiveness when the identity of Egyptian Jews was unquestioned by their Arab compatriots and they were viewed as partners in nation building. Jews of Egypt captures fragments of the lives of members of the Jewish community from the first half of the 20th Century until their departure from Egypt in the 1950s. It captures a time when the Egyptian community’s identity and allegiance to the country of Egypt was unquestioned. This documentary explores how this community came to be viewed with suspicion after the escalating Arab-Israeli conflict and particularly after the attack on Egypt by Israel, Britain and France in 1956. - Various Sources
