Two documentary filmmakers are chronicling the Egyptian national soccer team’s journey to reach their first World Cup since 1990. Each film follows former U.S Men’s National Team coach, Bob Bradley, as he guides an Egyptian team striving to provide a symbol of healing and hope in the midst of the country’s volatile political climate.
We the Pharaohs is the work of Jeffrey Plunkett, a former midfielder for Bradley’s Princeton University team that reached the 1993 NCAA Final Four. Plunkett is an Emmy-nominated and Overseas Press Club Award-winning producer and director.
Copper Pot Pictures is producing We Must Go: The Pharaohs, Bob Bradley and the Quest for the World Cup. Copper Pot Pictures was founded in 2007 by Dave LaMattina, Chad Walker and Clay Frost. This will be their second documentary on the subject and theme of soccer.
