Monday, March 30 “Scheherazade, Tell Me A Story,” an Egyptian film that features a young married and loving couple with great careers will be featured in the Cinema and the Sacred series at 6 p.m. Karim is just about to be appointed as editor-in-chief of a governmental newspaper and his wife, Hebba is the hostess of much appreciated TV programs about female victims. Karim is told that he will only be appointed if his wife avoids political topics – he does persuade her to make programs on ordinary people instead, but her “non-political” programs will become even more repugnant to the authorities. The film is unrated and 134 minutes long. A light meal will be available and Deane Tucker will return to facilitate the discussion.
