American Arab seeks to illuminate the lives and challenges faced by Arab-Americans in a hyper-sensitive post-9/11 world.

In American Arab, Iraqi-American filmmaker Usama Alshaibi will share his own story and introduce others, sparking a frank conversation about the identity of, and perceptions about, Arab-Americans. Seamlessly weaving historical footage, animation, as well as real-life scenes of Arabs living in the U.S., the film will put a human face on the vague complexities of identity and racism in post-9/11 America.
