The events of 9/11 have created much interest in Islam and Muslims. Mainstream media have responded to this demand for information with generalizations and stereotypes. America’s community of Muslims longs to be a part of the discourse. THE MUSLIMS I KNOW is a documentary that gives them a chance to be heard and understood through dialogue with non-Muslim Americans. A documentary written and produced by Mara Ahmed.

The Muslims I Know (2008) 58 minutes

Both film screenings will be followed by Q & A with Mara Ahmed
