Screenings for John Greyson and Dr. Tarek Loubani – Monday, Oct. 7

Johns Hopkins will host the kickoff event for An International Day of Screenings for John Greyson and Dr. Tarek Loubani.

Monday October 7th, 9pm, Gilman Hall 50, Johns Hopkins Homewood Campus.

Program includes “Proteus” (2003) and excerpts from “Zero Patience” (1993) and “Lilies” (1996).

Subsequent events are planned across the US, Canada, Brazil, the UK, and elsewhere. In screening some of Greyson’s innovative, stunning, and transgressive work, we also hope to raise awareness about Greyson and Loubani’s current and unjust imprisonment.

Greyson and Loubani are two Canadians who have been held for more than 50 days without charges in a prison in Cairo, Egypt. The two were on their way to the Gaza Strip, where Loubani was to train medical personnel and Greyson planned to film this and other solidarity work being done in Gaza.
