Brothers and Others. The Impact of September 11

I fratelli e gli altri. L'impatto dell'11 settembre sui Musulmani e gli Arabi d'America
by Nicolas Rossier Documentary Usa 2002 53'

The impact of September 11th attack on Arabs and Muslims in America. Fear and ignorance turn into boycott and prejudices. In interviews with Arab and Muslim immigrants, government representatives, and a select group of legal and historical experts, this film explores the causes and growth of a phobia getting as far as the denial of civil rights to a whole religion or a political group. America's fear of terrorism has nega- tively impacted a substantial portion of the immigrants as well as US nationals with the wave of racial intolerance and reactionary legislation, social and economic discriminations and seclusion.<%YOUTUBE=ip_9SQCpkpE%>
