Empowering Younger Generations
Date(s) - 10/11/2019 - 10/20/2019
Arab Film Festival
SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA
There are very few venues to provide Americans, and especially Arab-American youth, with an alternative to the prevailing, monolithic images depicting Arabs as violent people, trapped in victim/victimizer cycles as shown through the lens of mass media. As a result, the American public is left with a very limited understanding of the various cultures and complexities found in the region and its people. Young people from Arab, Muslim and Middle Eastern communities are particularly vulnerable to the effects of racial and religious prejudice, and the scarcity of positive images of their heritage in the popular media only exacerbates the problem.
