Brothers and Others captures the impact of the September 11th tragedy on Muslims and Arabs living in America. This 60-minute documentary follows a number of immigrants and American families as they struggle in the heightened climate of suspicion, FBI and INS investigations and economic hardships that erupted in America following the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. In interviews with Arab and Muslim immigrants, government representatives, and a select group of legal and historical experts—including Ghazi Khankan, Noam Chomsky and James Zogby—this film explores how America’s fear of terrorism has negatively impacted a substantial portion of the American population.
