AMERICAN MUSLIM Screening at ICNYU with CBST

RSVP HERE! Join ICNYU and CBST for a screening of American Muslim at the Islamic Center at NYU.  

This 82-minute documentary by Adam Zucker is about being Muslim in the Age of Trump, and follows five very diverse Muslim Americans in Brooklyn and Queens as they live, work, and contend with the Muslim ban. There is a political component, in tracking the immigration struggle and the pushback against the ban, but it is also very much an intimate glimpse into five distinct lives and neighborhoods with whom many viewers are not familiar.

The film largely takes place in Bay Ridge, Sunset Park, Ozone Park, Flatbush and Jamaica. As well as a scene in front of the ICNYU with a contingent of CBST screeners. This event will feature a talkback after the film. Watch the trailer!

"Adam Zucker's film is a timely and urgent portrait of a community seeking to combat hate with love. An important film...about the absolute vitality of solidarity. Especially interfaith and intercommunal solidarity."

-Film-Forward

"A triumphant look at compassion…A sensitive, urgent and alarming film, Zucker conceives a touching and detailed production, spanning generations. A powerful statement on faith, integrity and humanitarian values."

-Brazilian Press

“The documentary challenges Americans of all faiths—or not faith—to consider how they are standing up for those targeted by increasing xenophobia and racism."

-Islamic Voice

"Adam Zucker takes us on a tour of Islamic communities throughout the five boroughs of New York City. From longtime American citizens to wary recent immigarnts, Zucker portrays a pivotal time in the lives of human beings."

-The Bay Area Reporter
