One Hand: The Movie

You are here

 
 
A few months into their marriage, Johnny and Rebecca Weixler, from Lebanon County, Pennsylvania travelled to Egypt to film a documentary in Egypt on Christian-Muslim relations post-2011 Uprising. Their finished product is a gripping and revealing exposure on Muslim-Christian relations in revolutionary Egypt. 
 
The Center for Arab-West Understanding helped in the production of, and facilitation of interviews for the documentary.
 
The title of the finished product - 'One Hand: The Movie' - is a reference to a common slogan of the revolution.
 
"المسلمين والمسيحيين يد واحدة"
"al-Muslimeen wa al-Messahe'en yiid wahdah"
 "Muslims and Christians are one hand"
 
Itself an echo of an earlier slogan from the 1919 Egyptian revolution:
 
"يعيش الهلال مع الصليب"
"yae'ish al-Hilaal ma'a al-Sileeb"
"The Crescent lives with the Cross"
