We the Pharaohs: A New Doc Chronicling Bob Bradley’s Time in Egypt

Well, this looks pretty fantastic. We the Pharaohs chronicles former USMNT manager Bob Bradley’s time in Egypt as he attempts to lead its national side to its first World Cup in more than 20 years. Bradley’s tenure as Pharaohs manager has happened to coincide with with one of the most tumultuous times in modern Egyptian history.

The film, which is still shooting (Egypt have six more matches to play in their World Cup qualification campaign), is being directed by documentary filmmaker Jeffery Plunkett. As you can see from the teaser above, it captures Egypt at a time of upheaval, with soccer fans taking in the effort to overthrow former Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak, the tragic riot at an Egyptian league soccer match earlier this year, and Bradley’s role with the national team through it all.

We the Pharaohs will continue shooting through Egypt’s qualifying campaign. Keep tabs on the movie at WethePharaohs.com.
