I love it when I get to see all of the amazing things that Chapter Be interviewees are doing after my interview with them! It is super exciting to be able to follow along and see the steps they are taking on their Chapter Be path. Since I interviewed Melanie Horkan, the documentary that she is co-producing, My Enemy, My Brother, went to the Tribeca Film Festival!
The doc is about two former war vets from the Iran-Iraq war who saved each other’s lives. It’s an inspiring, positive story about two people rising above political and religious differences, and Melanie’s been working on it as a labor of love for the past couple years. They are now working to turn into into a full featured documentary, with the hope of taking Najah back to Iraq to reunite with his wife and child, who he has not seen for 20 years.
In an effort to do so, they have launched a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo, and you can help contribute to it by clicking HERE! The site (along with the video above) will also tell you more about their plan for next steps and what they will do with the crowdfunding money raised.
Check it out! You would be supporting both Melanie’s Chapter Be story and Najah & Zahed’s story! That’s a threefer!
