Storyline

This highly kinetic tableaux of uprooted sights and sounds works most earnestly to expose the racial biases concealed in familiar images. Relying on valuable snippets from feature films such as "Exodus", "Lawrence of Arabia", "Black Sunday", "Little Drummer Girl", and network news shows, the filmmakers have constructed an oddly wry narrative, mimicking the history of Mid East politics.

It explained itself without comentary. A clever idea.
22 April 2004 | by valandil-1See all my reviews

Although this film has no plot or story, it makes a very strong case against western discrimination and stereotyping of Arabs... A long series of clips from mainly hollywood movies that contained Anti Arab comments or portrayals cut into a flowing collage. The best thing about it is that it needs no comment, no text, no words. It makes no judgment, makes no comment but rather allows the audience to watch and judge for themselves. An almost impossible feat in any other medium. A clever idea, well executed.
