A screening of "Free Trip to Egypt" is planned at The Picture House on Sunday, October 27 at 8:00 pm.
Seeking to build a bridge of mutual understanding and friendship, a Canadian-Egyptian entrepreneur living in Switzerland 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. A diverse group from various backgrounds is selected and soon enough, they arrive in Egypt where they are paired with local Egyptians just as diverse as they are. The outcome 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. Rated NR, 98 minutes.
