FILMMAKER IN ATTENDANCE – In the throes of the Egyptian Arab Spring, Bassem Youssef

television program modeled after Jon Stewart’s “The Daily Show”. The wildly popular and
controversial show creates dangerous consequences for Bassem and his staff in a country
where free speech remains unsettled law.
