Abstract:

Enemy Alien is the story of the fight to free Farouk Abdel-Muhti, a Palestinian-born human rights activist detained in a post-9/11 sweep of Muslim immigrants. The story is told by filmmaker Konrad Aderer, the grandson of Japanese Americans interned during World War II. Abdel-Muhti awakens the filmmaker's connection with his own family history. Asking his grandmother about her World War II internment for the first time, Aderer fully confronts his generational legacy: the betrayal and helplessness of the 'enemy alien'. Though not charged with any crime, Abdel-Muhti is beaten and locked in solitary confinement, and his American-born son Tarek is arrested in a counterterrorism investigation into the documentary itself.
