The New Jersey Theatrical Premiere of The Arab Americans is on Thursday, October 5, 2017 at 7 PM at Bow Tie Caldwell Cinema, 317 Bloomfield Ave, Caldwell, NJ.
The Arab Americans is the untold story of the contributions immigrants from the Middle East, North Africa and the Arabian Peninsula have made on the United States. Placing the Arab American immigrant experience within the context of American history, this show explores the multiple waves of immigration and the tremendous impact of 9/11 on the Arab American community.
There will be a Q&A after the film with Producer/Director Abe Kasbo:
“Arab-Americans have proudly ventured beyond their ethnicity, language and religion to make noteworthy contributions to both the immigrant experience and ultimately the American experience. They served this nation with significant contributions throughout the spectrum of society – as politicians and public servants, entertainers, physicians, business leaders, and educators. It is this extraordinary and uniquely American story of people and places that must be told.”
