Storyline

This documentary explores how Muslims in the Middle East view the influence of American popular culture, particularly Hollywood movies, on their lives and their religion. Residents of Cairo, Egypt; Beirut, Lebanon; Doha, Qatar; and Erbl, Kurdistan, are interviewed. Many of them work at local or network television outlets; others are teenagers encountered in video stores. Most of the older interviewees see Hollywood movies as a corrupting influence and an attack on their religion. Younger residents speak openly of their love for American movies. Written by David Glagovsky <dglagovsky@verizon.net>
