AUC TO HOST “THE BIG FLIP” SCREENING





WHAT

A film screening, “The Big Flip,” hosted by The American University in Cairo (AUC). The film is part of the American Film Showcase, which brings award-winning contemporary American documentaries, independent fiction films, and documentary know-how to audiences around the world. The Big Flip follows the lives of four “flipped” families where the wife wins the bread and the husband takes care of the home and children.

The screening will be followed by a discussion with the filmmaker, Izzy Chan, moderated by Helen Rizzo, associate professor and chair of the Department of Sociology, Egyptology and Anthropology at AUC.

WHO

Izzy Chan is a filmmaker with a background in advertising as a strategist and researcher in human behavior, social trends and popular culture. Her senior film project from University of Southern California’s School of Cinematic Arts was screened at film festivals around the world. Chan’s personal struggle as an “accidental” breadwinner wife is the spark that led to the making of the documentary.
