Pitting rationalism against fundamentalism and advocating for personal liberties and a healthy public discourse informed by open debate, join Calgary Cinematheque as it screens Youssef Chahine’s Destiny.

An opulent large-scale musical spectacle, the legendary Egyptian director shares this story of political intrigue and sectarian tensions revolving around 12th century Arab Andalusian philosopher Averröes whose teachings influenced developments in both Christianity and Islam.

Destiny screens at 7:00pm on December 13, 2018 at the Globe Cinema (617 8th Ave. SW). Advance tickets and memberships can be found at calgarycinema.org.
