Cambridge, MA, USA
On April 12th, The Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Islamic Studies Program at Harvard University, the Harvard Foundation, and the Pluralism Project hosted a screening of the film "Fordson: Faith, Fasting, and Football." The film follows a predominately Arab-American high school football team from a working-class Detroit suburb as they practice for their big cross-town rivalry game during the last ten days of Ramadan, revealing a community holding onto its Islamic faith while they struggle for acceptance in post 9/11 America. The screening was followed by a discussion with the film’s director and executive producer, Rashid Ghazi. Click here to view the trailer.
