Flying While Muslim: Racial Profiling Post 9/11
Independent Films, Social Responsibility Movies, Trailers
“FLYING WHILE MUSLIM” shows the faces of racial profiling in the post 9/11 America--and examines the complex intersection of immigration, multiculturalism, and national security. Director Lyra Porras Garzon presents a wide range of voices, from those of Americans who have been victimized by racial profiling to those who argue it is a necessary evil in the face of a terrorist threat. The film seeks to open a space for dialogue by sharing the stories of ordinary men and women at a time when the fear of terrorism has changed the way Americans look at their country--and each other.
