OCanFilmFest Talks – Tarek Mounib (documentary ‘Free Trip to Egypt’, #PlegeToListen)

Tarek Mounib recently stopped by CKCU’s studios to chat with A Luta Continua host Monique Fuller the morning after the Canadian premiere of the documentary film Free Trip to Egypt.

The film follows his search for random Americans concerned about an Islamic threat.  He takes a group of these strangers to Egypt with a hope of building bridges of mutual understanding and friendship between them and Egyptian individuals/families he has matched with them .  Tarek talks about his motivation and back-story surrounding the creation of the film and the ensuing #PlegeToListen initiative.

The film screens at the Bytowne Cinema in Ottawa until July 25th.  Check listings for show times.  Here’s the trailer.
