Wednesday  3 May  2017, 19:00 (Cinéma Gallerie)

Runtime: 94'

Tickling Giants PosterFollowing the Arab Spring and in need of a laugh, Dr. Bassem Youssef left heart surgery to try his hand at comedy. "Al Bernameg", the first political satire show in Egypt, had 30 million weekly viewers. TICKLING GIANTS shows that comedy can be cathartic. This movie shows people who fight oppression with their jokes, not their fists.

The film will be followed by a tête-à-tête with:

Shaima Abu-I-Kheir (Member of the Egyptian Journalist Syndicate and the National Union of Journalists in London) and Caroline Petit, Deputy Director, UNRIC.

The film is in English and has a run time of 1 hour and 51 minutes
