The Muslims I Know

"A far cry from media depictions of extremist militants, America’s small community of Muslims longs to be heard and understood. This documentary attempts to bridge the cultural chasm between mainstream U.S. society and Muslim Americans whose hopes and dreams are no different than those of previous immigrant generations. Focusing on Pakistani-born citizens and their families, the film highlights similarities between Islam and the other Abrahamic faiths, celebrates cultural richness and diversity, and dispels stereotypes by addressing questions from non-Muslim Americans in candid interviews."
