Tom Skinner, the executive producer, will present this movie at the Old Art Building’s WT Best Theater on Sunday, February 16, 2014 at 5:00 pm

Unlikely Heroes of the Arab Spring is an eye-opening exploration of the volatile economic conditions that led to the 2010 uprisings in the Middle East and North Africa known as “the Arab Spring.” Through the stories of business people and citizens across the region, the program shows that the events of the Arab Spring and the turmoil that continues today are less about politics than economics: over 90% of the population of the Arab world is still forced to live and work outside the rule of law, denying the vast majority of citizens the ability to earn a living free of government corruption and repressive regulations
