The Tennessee World Affairs Council is pleased to share information about global affairs events in the community that may be of interest such as this event organized by our friends at Millions of Conversations.
About this Event
We are pleased to invite you to the film screening of “Free Trip to Egypt,” an inspirational documentary about what happens when a group of people travel to Egypt to face their fears, uncertainties, and even mistrust towards a nation, a religion, and a people far different from what they know.
Millions of Conversations believes in the power of interpersonal experience to reshape perspectives, and we are honored to invite filmmaker Tarek Mounib, producer and also the group leader in the documentary, to join us in Nashville.
A post-film discussion will be led by panelists Dr. Paul Lim, of Vanderbilt Divinity School; Michael McRay of Narrative 4; Sarah Alzabet of Murfreesboro Muslim Youth; and Nancy Youssef, entrepreneur and adjunct professor at Belmont University.
THE MISSION of the nonprofit, nonpartisan Tennessee World Affairs Council is to promote international awareness, understanding and connections to enhance the region’s global stature and to prepare Tennesseans to thrive in our increasingly complex and connected world.
THE VISION of the Tennessee World Affairs Council is a well-informed community that thinks critically about the world and the impact of global events.
