Third World Newsreel (TWN) and NewFilmmakers Series are proud to present Asian American Filmmakers Program. Please join us on Tuesday, July 5th at 6PM.

Life or Liberty by Konrad Aderer, 8 minutes
Shokriea Yaghi copes with the senseless incarceration of her husband in 9/11's aftermath. A Japanese American woman who lived through the WWII camps shares her bitterness and her fears for the future, as immigration law expert Cyrus Mehta and former federal prosecutor Michael Wildes debate the larger context of anti-terror policies. Part of the Call to Media Action series.

Rising Up: The Alams by Konrad Aderer, 11 minutes
See how a Bangladeshi-American family targeted by Special Registration fights back. As part of the Homeland security measures, immigrant men from 25, mostly Muslim countries were required to enroll in a Special Registration program. The result: no evidence of terror, but some 13,000 people are now being deported mostly for expired visas. The Alams were among the many families who believed that voluntarily participating in the Special Registration would show their loyalty. Instead, they face the prospect of breaking up their family, despite a decade of hard work and the raising of two children. Working with DRUM (Desis Rising Up and Moving), the Queens South Asian activist group, the Alams have become activists, organizing to fight for their right to stay. Part of the Call for Change series.

Two Months to Home by Janice Ahn, 8 minutes
In the months prior to 9-11, an Afghan woman named Samira Rahman narrowly escapes from the Taliban, losing her family. After settling down in Long Island and beginning a new one, Samira is taken away by Homeland Security agents in the middle of the night. Her husband Abdul, who runs a coffee cart in South Ferry, and their two young boys await news of her fate.

Dastaar: Defending Sikh Identity by Kevin Lee, 12 min
A restaurant owner beaten. A policeman fired. A 20 year subway conductor born in the U.S., threatened with job loss: All for wearing the signature turbans of their religion, Sikhism. Since 9/11, hate crimes and job losses have plagued the Sikh-American community, whose religion originated in India, and is not even Islamic. In response, the NYC Sikh community has organized to confront the bias and attacks, through legal suits, pressure on city officials and proactive public education. An excellent introduction to an often misunderstood religion and the success of community activism. Part of the Call for Change series.

December 7/September 11 by Ann Brandman & Paul Nishijima, 15 minutes
A comparison of how the events and possible after effects of September 11th may mirror those of the attack on Pearl Harbor. A collection of interviews with Japanese-American veterans who witnessed the events of December 7 in Hawaii offer their insight into what has happened and what might be to come. Part of the Call to Media Action series.

Enemy Alien Sneak Preview at Anthology Film Archives
Join Japanese American filmmaker Konrad Aderer to a sneak preview of his upcoming documentary film Enemy Alien.

Enemy Alien, a first-person documentary, is the gripping story of the fight to free Farouk Abdel-Muhti, a gentle but indomitable Palestinian-born human rights activist detained in a post-9/11 sweep of Muslim immigrants. Told through the eyes of the filmmaker, the grandson of Japanese Americans interned during World War II, this documentary takes on unprecedented intimacy and historical resonance.

As the filmmaker confronts his own family legacy of incarceration, his involvement in the current struggle deepens. Resistance brings consequences: In retaliation for organizing a massive protest from inside detention, Farouk is beaten and locked in solitary confinement, and his American-born son Tarek is arrested in a counterterrorism investigation into the documentary itself.

Tuesday, July 5th, 9:30PM
Anthology Film Archives
32 Second Avenue, corner of East Second Street
New York, NY
Admission: $6

Hi everybody,

We are 2002studios based in Harrow, NW London in the UK. We are currently recording a lot of multi-lingual voice-over projects for well-known multimedia and linguistic companies. These projects range from video tutorials to audio integrated software and even complete audio books with music and sound effects! We would love to work with you to overdub your films in many different languages. How do we make that happen?

Well, we have our very own database of over 150 native speakers in 38 different languages. We provide male as well as female voice-over actors in English (U.K. regional dialects as well as American English), French, Dutch (Flemish is also available), German, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian,… but also Japanese, Indonesian, Mandarin, Cantonese, Farsi, Croatian, Hungarian, Turkish and many other languages. If we don’t have a language in our database that you are currently looking for or if you are not pleased with our selection, then we will hold auditions and find you a suitable voice-over actor at no cost.

Linguists have verified all our native speakers in the database so that we can provide 100% authenticity. 100% of the recording takes place in our London studio, so we have a consistent sound, have complete oversight of the quality.

We provide all this with VERY COMPETITIVE pricing and we are not shy to throw in some bonuses when asked to do so (Think music and sound design).

If you are interested in finding out more, feel free to contact us anytime.

Hello All,

Are you producing or planning a documentary in the Arab World, in general, or in Morocco, in particular? If you are and need a fixer, cultural consultant, facilitator, or basic translator, I am qualified and excited to contribute to your production. This region's dynamism delivers a constant flow of content ripe for documentation and fresh perspective--the Arab Spring; (mis)perceptions of Islam; the post Bin Laden Al Qaeda; its ongoing wars and conflicts; growing sectarianism; gender issues...the list is always rich. I'm knowledgeable and passionate about this region's history, culture, and its peoples and would be eager to channel this insight into documentary film-making. Please check out my profile for essential info and contact me for a full resume/more details: alex(dot)safos(at)gmail.com. Thanks for keeping me in-mind if the right opportunity presents itself. –Best, Alex
