Work on the American Bedu Documentary is moving along well. During the documentary you will be meeting some people very important into my life. You will either see them or you will hear about them. I’m going to introduce a few of the key players to give you some background about them and their contribution.
Carol Fleming Al-Ajroush – your own American Bedu in living technolocolor during multiple phases of her journey with cancer.
Richard – a dear friend from the old days of working within the CIA. A strong man who one knew had their back.
Alison – She is my dear nurse who also went and spent time with Abdullah in Texas prior to her death. She is one of the rare few who knew both Abdullah and myself during our battles with cancer.
Mama Moudy – this movie could never have been produced without the existence of Mama Moudy, Abdullah’s precious mother. You will learn more about this fascinating movie and how she shaped the great man who became my late husband.
Dr. John Powderly – Charlotte’s cutting edge research scientist oncologist with the deepest heart and compassion for eradicating cancer from this world.
There are others who will be seen in the documentary and you will get to know them too. They are people who have made significant differences in bridge building, cultural awareness and of course, the fight against life’s most insidious battle – cancer.
For now, I’d like you to think of the individuals who are mentioned and have some fun. Let’s pretent that the documentary may make a transformation one day like “Charlie Wilson’s War” from a documentary to an all cast movie. Who would you wish for American Bedu to star?
I would love to see Abdullah portrayed as George Clooney. Once I can find them I can even post earlier pictures of Abdullah where friends thought they were actual pictures of Clooney instead.
For myself, I can envision Michelle Pfeiffer.
Richard…he’s a tough one that I have to think about for he has that natural talent to blend in so well.
Alison must be a woman who glows with passion, determination and love.
Mama Moudy I think will be the hardest to place and I would prefer to see her placed by a non-American and preferably by a strong woman of Arab heritage. She can be played but not replaced.
As for Dr. Powderly, I’d simply love to see him as himself.
