    Join us for a screening of Tickling Giants and a dicussion about teaching strategies

    This documentary depicts the experience of comedian Bassem Youssef and his attempt to keep alive free speech in the midst of the Egyptian Arab Spring. A former heart surgeon, Bassem's satirical TV show has been compared to US comedian's Jon Stewart's The Daily Show, except that Bassem's Al Bernameg was much, much more popular.

    Issues addressed include free speech, creativity and humour, the abuse of power, societal divides in the Muslim world, and the outcomes of the Arab Spring.

    This screening and PD event is a must for every teacher who wants to understand more about students' and parents' experiences in countries were freedom and freedom of speech is not protected. In the film, Bassem and his staff must endure physical threats, protests, and lawsuits, all because of jokes. As Bassem attempts to remain on the air, stay out of jail, and keep his staff safe, he continues to hold those in power accountable. Despite increasing danger, the team at Al Bernameg employs comedy, not violence, to comment on hypocrisy in media, politics, and religion. Tickling Giants follows the team of Al Bernameg as they discover that democracy is not easily won.

    Every participant attending will be able to take away an educational resource for adapting to their classroom. The emphasis is on non-violent solutions to disagreements and understanding that there are no correct answers to difficult issues.
