Reel Bad Arabs - How Hollywood Vilifies a People

About

This trailer for “Reel Bad Arabs”, a documentary produced by the Media Education Foundation in collaboration with Professor Jack Shaheen, explores historical and contemporary depictions of Arabs in media. From the producers: “The film explores a long line of degrading images of Arabs -- from Bedouin bandits and submissive maidens to sinister sheikhs and gun-wielding "terrorists"-- along the way offering devastating insights into the origin of these stereotypic images, their development at key points in US history, and why they matter so much today.”
