Featuring acclaimed author Dr. Jack Shaheen, this film explores a long line of degrading images of Arabs; from Bedouin bandits and submissive maidens to sinister sheikhs and gun-wielding “terrorists.”

The film offers devastating insights into the origin of these stereotypical images, their development at key points in US history, and why they matter so much today. Shaheen shows how the persistence of these images over time has served to naturalize prejudicial attitudes toward Arabs and Arab culture. 50m
