TEC Alum Film Premiering at Tribeca Film Festival

Tickling Giants, edited by TEC alum Tyler Walk, will have its world premiere in the World Documentary Competition program at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival:

Tickling Giants, directed and written by Sara Taksler. (USA) – World Premiere. Charting Bassem Youssef's rise as Egypt's foremost on-screen satirist, Tickling Giants offers a rousing celebration of free speech and a showcase for the power of satire to speak for the people against a repressive government. Where this story differs from the familiar success of Youssef's idol, Jon Stewart: Bassem's jokes come with serious, dangerous, and at times revolutionary consequences. In Arabic, English with subtitles.
