American East DVD Features
A timely, poignant drama about Arab-Americans living in post-9/11 Los Angeles, American East examines long-held misunderstandings about Arabic and Islamic culture. Since the attacks, the Arab community has bore the burden of racial discrimination as many Americans have used their cultural ignorance to label a segment of the U.S. population that most Americans know nothing about, but who are of particular interest to them. The story highlights the stereotypes given to many Arab-Americans and acts as an explosive reminder of the current pressures under which Muslims live.
