Directed by Konrad Aderer
Official Selection, 2011 Toronto Palestine Film Festival
After 9/11, Palestinian human rights activist Farouk Abdel-Muhti was one amongst thousands of Muslim immigrants imprisoned in detention centers by the US government. Unwilling to accept that he was a suspect because of his religion, his nation of origin, and his political beliefs, Farouk rebelled, organizing a hunger strike and becoming a symbol of resistance against Homeland Security’s racialized dragnet targeting brown-skinned Americans.
Directed by the grandson of WWII incarcerees, ENEMY ALIEN depicts with raw grit the urgency for action in the face of discriminatory policing. –Brian Hu
