American Heart, Beyond Burkas and Bombers
AMERICAN HEART (Chris Newberry, 92 min.)
A primary care clinic in Minnesota becomes a crossroads for embattled refugees and their devoted doctors. We get a glimpse of the failing health and remarkable lives of Lem Thor, a former political prisoner from Cambodia; Patrick Junior, a member of an oppressed ethnic minority in Burma; and Alex Gliptis, an Ethiopian refugee suffering from PTSD, diabetes and HIV.
BEYOND BURKAS AND BOMBERS (Joanne Lisosky, 28 min.)
Through interviews with media scholars, Muslim students and Muslim comedians we explore the advent of Islamaphobia in America in the post-9/11 era.
