PLANET OF THE ARABS



Salloum’s trailer-esque montage of Hollywood’s relentless vilification of Arabs and Muslims is informed by the book ‘Reel Bad Arabs’ by Jack Shaheen: Of 1,000 films that have Arab and Muslim characters (from 1896-2000), 12 were positive depictions, 52 were even-handed and the remainder were negative.

 

Director: Jackie Salloum

Release Date: 2003
