Free Trip to Egypt takes audiences on a remarkable journey, in which an unlikely group of travelers arrive to the Middle East and find themselves transformed by the power of human connection.
Tarek Mounib, a Canadian-Egyptian entrepreneur living in Switzerland, is troubled by a world that seems ever more divided and polarized. In response to increasing levels of anger and hatred towards “the other” on American social and broadcast media, he resolves to reach out to the very people who fear his culture, with an intriguing idea.
With the aim of trying to build mutual understanding, Tarek travels across the United States in order to find Americans who feel threatened and offer them a Free Trip to Egypt.
Tarek Mounib will be at the theatre on July 19th for a post-screening Q&A session.
