Making Films & Documentaries
The Pharaonic Village is a Williamsburg-type village located on Jacob Island on the Nile, just three miles south of the center of Cairo. In this “Village,” Ancient Egyptian life is depicted exactly as it existed five thousand years ago. The scenes that are shown include: agriculture, boat building, fishing, house building, sculpting, perfume making, papyrus making, wine and beer making. It contains a replica of a temple with the many gods worshipped by the ancient Egyptians and a real-size model of a nobleman’s house & a peasant’s house . In addition, the Village contains a replica of King Tut’s Tomb with all its treasures – exactly as Howard Carter discovered it in 1922. Pharaonic costumes and actors are available for hire for any filming project. Additionally, the village also contains several exhibits which cover different periods of Egyptian history. The art pieces & the models of these exhibits can be used for various film projects.
