Join us in Buchanan 104 for the upcoming Films on Friday screening, "Tickling Giants."
While the Egyptian revolution of 2011 was underway, surgeon turned comedian, Bassem Youssef, airs a television show that makes him popular with his countrymen, but disliked by his government. Dubbed “The Egyptian Jon Stewart,” Bassem creates the satirical show “Al Bernameg,” enduring physical threats, protests, and legal action, all in the name of making jokes.
Run time: 1hr. 51min.
Afternoon snacks provided! Post-screening discussion will follow.
