By Josh Lemoine on June 6, 2017

This week on the show, we’re talking with political cartoonist and University of Ottawa professor Omid Milani. We talk about the new documentary Tickling Giants (playing June 7th at the ByTowne Cinema, a presentation of One World Film Festival) and about the importance of satire in defending freedoms.

Tickling Giants is a timely, funny, outstanding and must-see documentary following the story of Egyptian comedian, political satirist, and TV show host Bassem Youssef.

Tracklist:

  • Afrotronix – “Sinon le pays va tomber”

Tickling Giants plays Wednesday June 7 at 6:30pm at the ByTowne Cinema (325 Rideau St). Tickets are available via Eventbrite or at the box office. Tickets are $12 and proceeds of the event will go to support One World Arts in delivering the 28th annual One World Film Festival, Ottawa’s longest running documentary film festival.
