VALENTINO’S GHOST - The Politics Behind Images

Valentino’s Ghost examines the ways in which America’s foreign policy agenda in the Middle East drives the U.S. media’s portrayals of Arabs and Muslims. The film lays bare the truths behind taboo subjects that are conspicuously avoided, or merely treated as sound bites by the mainstream American media: “Why do they hate us?” “Why do we hate them?” What were the events that led to the 9/11 attacks? What are the politics behind the U.S.-Israeli relationship? Why is there a robust debate about these subjects in Europe, the Arab World and in Israel itself, but not in the U.S.? A dozen expert commentators elucidate the reasons behind the lack of a serious national dialogue on these topics, and reveal the media’s – and the U.S. government’s – roles in perpetuating many Americans’ fear and loathing of Arabs, Muslims and Islam.
