Pharaohs Unveiled is a new documentary by Menelik Shabazz.

The secrets of the Kings and Queens of ancient Kemet are revealed in this unique supernatural documentary that takes you inside the world of the Pharaohs. The film combines interviews with input from the spirit world from Imhotep (father of medicine) Pharaohs Khufu, Akhenaton, alongside Queen Nefertiti and Henutsen. Through channeler/medium Neferatiti Ife, they bring to light the spirituality and science that enabled them to build pyramids and temples that continue to inspire the world.
