Storyline

'Fordson' follows a high school football team from Dearborn, Michigan as it prepares for its big cross-town rivalry game during the last ten days of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. The story is set at Fordson High School, a public school, which was once all white, but now boasts a 98% Arab-American population. As we follow the team on the road to victory, 'Fordson' unearths the story of a community desperately holding onto its Islamic faith while struggling to gain acceptance in post 9-11 America. 'Fordson' is an unprecedented glimpse inside the lives of a community that is home to the largest concentration of Arabs in any city outside of the Middle East, and their determination to hold on to the American Dream.

Great Movie!
11 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Inspiring movie that will hopefully help ease racial and religious intolerance. At least that is my hope for this movie.

For those who are curious and want to learn more about Muslims in America this is a good movie to watch.

As a Muslim I hope this will help others to see that we are no different from anyone else in this country. Trying to make a place and a living for ourselves.

This film has inspired my twelve year old nephew to take up football when it is available. If you have a boy and want to encourage him to take up football this is a good movie to watch.
