2017   Sara Taksler   111 min Egypt   subtitles   Doc

The career of Egyptian heart surgeon-turned-political satirist Bassem Youssef is chronicled in this documentary directed by Daily Show producer Sara Taksler. Youssef gave up his lucrative medical profession in 2011 to become one of Egypt's most powerful television voices of dissent against an oppressive regime, showing us how one comedy show united the country and tested the limits of free press.
