Episode Description:

Wrongful Imprisonment - Get Them Out Now (2:09 PSA)
Free John and Tarek (an appeal from John's students)

Inspiring film making that has action, commitment to justice, equality and change; courage, risks, speaking up for injustice, love, playfulness, diplomacy, art on your own terms, generosity. Responding to the current moment is more important than waiting for the perfect moment is what this film demonstrates.

Two Canadians, Dr. Tarek Loubani and filmmaker John Greyson, were arrested by Egyptian police on Friday, August 16 in Cairo.

They were en route to the Gaza Strip, where they are working on an academic and medical collaboration between the University of Western Ontario (UWO) and the main hospital in the Gaza Strip, the al-Shifa hospital.

John Greyson's students made this film - in the moment - to champion - when someone is wrongfully imprisoned you do everything in your power to get them out.
