Free Trip to Egypt Film Screening: #PledgeToListen Day of Unity
June 12, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm$12.50
On June 12, “Free Trip to Egypt” opens nationwide for a one-day-only-event in 500 theaters across in the United States for our #PledgeToListen Day of Unity. The screening will be followed by a telecast live-panel discussion from Washington DC featuring Tarek Mounib, politicians, and thought leaders.
The timely new documentary follows the journey of Tarek Mounib (a Canadian-Egyptian Muslim) who decides to reach out to the very people who fear him. He travels across the United States 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, police officer, Marine veteran, single mom, preacher and 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.
