Tarek Mounib, a Canadian-Egyptian entrepreneur living in Switzerland, is troubled by a world that seems ever more divided and polarised. In response to increasing levels of anger and hatred towards “the other” on American social and broadcast media, he resolves to reach out to the very people who fear his culture, with an intriguing idea; Tarek travels across the United States in order to find Americans who feel threatened by Islam and offer them a Free Trip to Egypt. This documentary takes audiences on a remarkable journey, in which an unlikely group of travelers to the Middle East find themselves transformed by the power of human connection. #PLEDGETOLISTEN

What is the HUB Film Club?
The HUB Film Club is a community cinema here at the HUB at Cowichan Station. Started in May of 2016, our aim is to bring people of all ages together over good films and of course, popcorn! Films screen on the fourth Friday of every month all the year ’round and we invite you to be a part of it. We show an eclectic program of film; both classic and new, Canadian and international, for families and for adults. We have access to new theatrical releases approximately 4 months after their 1st run in professional theatres through our licence with Criterion Pictures Canada. All proceeds go to support the wonderful, volunteer-run community centre that is the HUB.
**Films start at 7 pm (doors open at 6:30). If you are planning on coming to see a film, remember to bring a cushion to put on your seat for movie-watching comfort! Or bring your own couch!**
