Riem Farahat in Saudis in America

Saudis in America

2008 NR

First-time filmmaker Fahmi Farahat paints a thought-provoking portrait of what it's like to be a Saudi living in post-9/11 America in this documentary that includes candid interviews with Farahat's own friends and family members. The film asks a series of important but often uncomfortable questions: Why do Saudis oppress women? How do they view the events of Sept. 11, 2001? And do they really "hate America"?
