Summary

Usama Alshaibi's documentary American Arab explores how Arab-Americans are treated and received in their native country in the years after the 9/11 terror attacks. The director utilizes his own life story throughout the film to show how personal this issue is for many people. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi
