OFF Movie Showing – Free Trip to Egypt
February 15, 2020 @ 9:00 am – 11:00 am
NEIPJC and Decorah United Church of Christ are coming together as co-sponsors of Free Trip to Egypt, one of the films at the 2020 Oneota Film Festival.
Free Trip to Egypt takes audiences on a remarkable journey, in which an unlikely group of travelers to the Middle East 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 polarised. 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 by Islam and offer them a Free Trip to Egypt.
