Intifada NYC (2009) Trailer
Trailer for the documentary Intifada NYC.
The opening of the United States’ first Arabic language public school provoked a firestorm of allegations that the school would teach radical Islam or even produce terrorists. As critics and the mainstream media stoked the flames in the climate of post-9/11 America, the controversy forced the school’s Arab-American Muslim principal from her job. Intifada NYC follows the principal’s struggle to get her job back, the outcry against the school, and the debate provoked about tolerance and freedom of speech. The film combines exclusive interviews and verite with graphic novel-style drawings, while the original score mixes classical, jazz, and Middle Eastern styles.
