Description

This month's film is Free Trip To Egypt  (Click here for trailer) - Rated NR

Film Synopsis:   Tarek Mounib (a Canadian-Egyptian Muslim) decides to reach out to the very people who fear him. He travels across the U.S. to find Americans concerned about an Islamic threat and makes them an intriguing offer: a Free Trip to Egypt. The initial reactions range from disbelief to hostility, but eventually a diverse group from various backgrounds is selected, including: a teacher, a police officer, a Marine veteran, a single mom, a preacher and a beauty pageant queen. All have their preconceptions but are receptive and courageous enough to embark on the adventure of a lifetime. Soon enough, the travelers arrive in Egypt where the Americans are paired with local Egyptians just as diverse as they are. The result is provocative, surprising, funny, magical, emotional, revealing, enlightening and ultimately life-changing — in other words, all things human — in this profoundly original and inspirational feature-length documentary.

Following the film, we will gather in The Party Room of the theater to have a more face to face conversation about the movie! In addition to discussing the film, this interfaith movie cohort is designed to foster relationships around the shared experience of cinema. 

For those who plan on attending, Individual $6 tickets will be available at the counter.
