Broadway World - May 6th, 2019
Seeking to build a bridge of mutual understanding and friendship, a Canadian-Egyptian entrepreneur of Muslim faith decides to create conversation surrounding common preconceived notions of his religious beliefs. Tarek Mounib, accompanied by Youtube celebrity and activist Adam Saleh, travels across the United States to dispel Americans' fears of Islamic threat and makes them an intriguing offer: a free trip to Egypt.
Fathom Events and Kindness Films present "Free Trip to Egypt" in more than 450 U.S. cinemas for one night only on Wednesday, June 12 at 7:00 p.m. local time. The premiere event is the highlight of the #PledgeToListen Day of Unity. Immediately following the screenings, audiences will experience a 30-minute panel discussion led by celebrities and thought leaders who hope to launch a discussion about how to listen and, as a result, bring more kindness to the world.
