The Temple of Philae: A Treasure on the Nile
Oye! Times
My Egyptian adventure begins at Aswan where I have arrived with a small group of travel journalists from Canada.
Experience Nubia's insight:

Due to the Aswan High dam a large area was flooded which, in turn, submerged several important archaeological sites. In addition, over 100,000 Nubian people had to be relocated and some of the archaeological treasures, like the Isis temple, had to be moved as well.

"Dragging my bike through a thousand kilometres of sand towards Dongola in northern Sudan"

"I was dragging my bike through a thousand kilometres of sand towards Dongola in northern Sudan. The Nile lay to my right, shimmering, tempting, as I sweated in the midday Saharan heat. I wondered what was on the other side of the longest river in the world. (Nothing, according to Google Maps.) The idea took hold, and when I arrived at the next Nubian village I tracked down the owner of a small boat and convinced him to give me a ride. And so it was about halfway across the world's longest river, outboard motor sputtering, cool water spray on my sunburnt face, that I realised that not only did I have absolutely no idea where I was going, but that this leap into the unknown was precisely what made me feel so damn alive. This, right now, was my most adventurous moment to date."

A feature documentary film about an ancient people, culture and places that time forgot.
Experience Nubia's insight:
The script was written with true events in mind, shaped from the collective wisdom of stories handed down from the elders of the Fedija and Kenouz tribes.Stories of loss, longing, and hope for the future.narrations and voice-overs are used to guide the story. Dialogue is spoken in the Nubia’s endangered native languages, taking the viewer deeper into the world of the Nubia. The first film spoken in Nubian language.
