Dr. Steve is BACK! ("I Want My Mummy," CSI Egypt, X-Raying the Pharaohs) to talk about his adventures traveling to Egypt just five weeks after the end of the 2011 Revolution in Egypt.

This photographic essay takes the audience along with Dr. Steve and his group of 13, including two chilren, on an extraordinary14-day journey through post-revolution Egypt, from Abu Simbel to Old Cairo, from the Temple of Philae to the Pyramids of Giza. He and his group were among the very first tourists to return to Egypt following the revolution. This lecture takes you not only on a virtual tour, it reveals that not everything we read in newspapers, or see on TV, reflects the reality of a distant land.

Art & Craft - A POV/PBS Documentary @ Ambler

Tuesday, December 13, 2016 - 6:30pm
Event location: 
Ambler
Mark Landis is one of the most prolific art forgers of the modern era — and he isn't in it for the money. In the last 30 years he's copied hundreds of pieces, from 15th-century icons to works by Picasso and even Dr. Seuss, then donated them to museums across the country. When a tenacious registrar discovers the ruse, Landis must confront his legacy and a chorus of duped professionals intent on stopping him. But Landis is a diagnosed schizophrenic, driven since his teens to escape "the life of a mental patient," and ending the con isn't so simple. A cat-and-mouse caper told with humor and compassion, Art and Craft uncovers the universal in one man's search for connection and respect.

  • Official Selection of the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival and International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam.
  • Named a Top 5 Documentary by the National Board of Review.
