The Virgin, the Copts and Me (La Vierge, les Coptes et Moi)

Despite having gone through various incarnations, or perhaps because of it, "The Virgin, the Copts and Me" is a disarmingly honest, thoroughly winning personal portrait of family and heritage, grounded in religion but not dependent on belief. Tyro helmer Namir Abdel Messeh struggled long and hard to get this personal project made after being dumped by his French producers for not adhering to their vision; the last laugh's on them, since the docu bagged $100,000 at Doha Tribeca and should easily find auds at fests and in Gallic theaters, as well as on TV.

The movie will be screened at this year's Tribeca Film Festival

I'm going to be in NYC this coming weekend.  Thank you for the reminder that the festival is happening.  I'm going to try to convince the wife to go see this documentary (at least) while we're up there!
