Abstract:

After the Terrorist attacks of 9/11, some Americans began defining a new "enemy alien"--American Arabs, South Asians, Muslims. Through a critical lens, this film explores a lesson that history has forgotten; of a country alienating its own citizens and violating their civil liberties once again. After Pearl Harbor it was being of Japanese ancestry, now it is Arabic descent, brown skin, belief in Islam. Looks at stories of individuals affected by the Japanese internments during WWII and draws parallels with events post-9/11, investigating how extensive "homeland security" can cross the line to racial attacks and unjust treatment of innocent individuals.
