Borrowed Items Ship free with Membership
Featuring author Dr. Jack Shaheen, the film explores a long line of degrading images of Arabs: Bedouin bandits, submissive maidens, sinister sheikhs and gun-wielding terrorists. It provides insights into the origin of these stereotypical images, their development at key points in U.S. history, and why they matter so much today.

By inspiring critical thinking about the social, political, and basic human consequences of leaving these Hollywood caricatures unexamined, the film challenges viewers to recognize the urgent need for narratives that do justice to the diversity and humanity of Arab people and the reality and richness of Arab history and culture.
