Preview Clip

Toronto-based filmmaker John Greyson and Dr. Tarek Loubani from London, Ontario, who were held for seven weeks in an Egyptian prison in what they described as squalid conditions, were freed October 5th. Bureaucratic red tape barred them from leaving the country until October 11th. Upon their arrival in Toronto, Loubani expressed their gratitude to everyone who pressured Egyptian officials to free them. (The pair were arrested on August 16th during violent anti-government demonstrations in Cairo. Authorities claimed they joined an attack on a police station, but they were never charged.)
