Tickling Giants (2016) – [framed] Documentary Film Series


Date & Time: 
Apr 27 2017 - 7:30pm - 9:30pm

As part of our [framed] documentary series, Next Stage
Arts presents Tickling Giants

— Nominee, Best Documentary,
Tribeca Film Festival 2016

In
the midst of the Egyptian Arab Spring, Bassem Youssef makes a decision that is
every mother’s worst nightmare… he leaves his job as a heart surgeon to become
a full-time comedian. (1h
51m)

Presented by editor Moaz Elfarouk. The
screening will be followed by a Q&A.

The films in the [framed] series have recently played on the
festival circuit around the world including Sundance and Tribeca, and all have
been recognized with festival honors. The eclectic lineup explores a wide range
of issues including gender, incarceration, beauty, otherness, greed, and the
role of family and tradition.

Curator Nancy Schafer worked for the iconic Tribeca Film
Festival for 11 years, where she was most recently the festival’s executive
director. Schafer and Next Stage co-founder Billy Straus met at the Camden
International Film Festival in 2015 where Schafer serves on the advisory board,
and the idea of programming a documentary series for Next Stage was born.
