A funny and heartbreaking new film about the “Egyptian Jon Stewart”, Bassem Youssef, “Tickling Giants” is coming to Athens for a special screening on Sunday, April 9, 1 p.m. at the Tate Theater on the campus of the University of Georgia. This showing is part of an international effort to spark dialogue about the abuse of power, free speech, and how we treat Muslims. Following the showing is a Q&A with the film’s producer Sara Taksler (currently Senior Producer of The Daily Show With Trevor Noah), who will also be attending.
Supported by grants from the Grady College, the Department of Entertainment and Media Studies, the Department of Journalism, and the Peabody Awards.
