Join us for a free screening of the film, American Muslim.

Expected to Attend: Director Adam Zucker

Film Synopsis: Shot in the boroughs of New York City, this film introduces the realities of five American Muslims in the wake of the U.S. Muslim Ban. Main characters Kobir, Aber, Mohamed, Debbie, and Imam allow Director Adam Zucker into their homes, mosques, protests and perspectives. As Islamaphobia rises in the U.S., American Muslim exposes the impact this has in our communities, and highlights how interfaith relationships have stood in solidarity.

Press:  “Zucker’s film is a timely and urgent portrait of a community seeking to combat hate with love." - Film Forward

“Sensitive and alarming…a powerful statement on faith, integrity, and humanitarian values.” - Brazilian Press

"A Jewish-American filmmaker takes viewers deep into New York’s Muslim-American neighborhoods, and hopes his new film will inspire interfaith discussion, action and empathy." - NY Jewish Week
