From Cairo to the Cloud

From Cairo to Cloud – Film & Panel Discussion

This movie is the story of an astonishing collection of ancient manuscripts – hidden for centuries in an Egyptian synagogue – and their remarkable odyssey to the modern world. It is a tale of adventure and discovery by pioneering women and radical rabbis. Victorian photos and early film-reel scenes combine with modern animations and visual effects to reveal a rare, crumbling text for the first time. This remarkable film combines an adventure story with the historical gaze of scholars, curators, programmers, and novelists from across the globe. (Trailer -https://www.cairotothecloud.com/).  92 min. Film Not-Rated.

Following the film, there will be a panel discussion by Gustavus faculty members Dr. Sam Kessler, Dr. Fuad Naeem, Dr. Eric Carlson, and Dr. Greg Kaster.

Sponsored by Bonnier Chair, Department of Religion, Gustavus Adolphus College; Nicollet County Historical Society; and Community & Family Education.

Thu., Sept. 5, 7–9 p.m., St. Peter High School Performing Arts Center, FREE. (Doors will open at 6:30 p.m.)
