Product description:

Brothers and Others is a one hour DVD documentary on the impact of the September 11th tragedy on Muslims and Arabs living in America. This documentary follows a number of immigrants and American families as they struggle in the heightened climate of suspicion, FBI and INS investigations and economic hardships that erupted in America following the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. In interviews with Arab and Muslim immigrants, government representatives, and a select group of legal and historical experts including Ghazi khankan, Noam Chomsky and James Zogby, this film explores how America’s fear of terrorism has negatively impacted a substantial portion of the American population.

    What People say?

    “As we wage a war against global terrorism and extremists in our midst, Brothers and Others is a powerful documentary about the "hidden" victims of 9/11, the thousands of Arabs and Muslims who have been detained without trial and many of whose lives have been shattered. It reminds us of the need to balance our desire for security with an equal concern for the rule of law and civil liberties which make America the great nation that it is.” - John L. Esposito, Author of Islamic Threat: Myth or Reality and Professor of Religion and International Affairs at Georgetown University

    “Brothers and Others is a film that tells the truth about an aspect of our recent history that most of us would rather ignore. It shines a bright light on the disastrous federal law enforcement response to the 9/11 tragedy by showing us the havoc that ethnic profiling and mass immigration detentions have wreaked on so many innocent lives. This film is a powerful document, and every American who cares about justice, fairness, and the ideals enshrined in our Constitution should see it and heed its message” - David A. Harris, Author, Profiles In Injustice: Why Racial Profiling Cannot Work (The New Press, 2002), Soros Senior Justice Fellow, Open Society Institute

    “An excellent film… direct, in-depth, personal, touching, well woven with music and city scenes. I myself, a member of the community, both Muslim and activist, learned a great deal.” - Dr. Barbara Nimri Aziz, WBAI/Radio Tahrir

    “The documentary is impressive and fascinating, both in subject matter and filmmaking. Nicholas Rossier addresses in this documentary the sensitive topic of Muslims in America with care, balance, and a humanistic approach to its subject matter. The real life stories of Muslims in America post September 11 as presented in this documentary reveal the unraveling of the American dream for certain immigrants and American citizens as a result of government actions. It simply and clearly lets the viewer experience the devastating economic and social effects on the people and families filmed. The filmmaking is direct and personal and conveys a sense of urgency and newsworthiness.” - Yvette Alberdingk-Thijm, MTV Networks International

    “A real masterpiece” - Arnaud Robert, le Temps

    “Brothers and Others, is a powerful testament to the strength and endurance of the human spirit and will serve, in future, as a sorrowful reminder of another agonizing chapter in America’s conflicted relationship with immigrants” - Lynn Vittorio, Aramica Newspaper

    “A courageous and sensitive piece” - Le Courrier

    "I have seen 'Brothers and Others' three times now, and each time my heart breaks for Nancy and her lover Ali, and for the families who will be forever marked by this terrible time in our history. But for me, the real importance of the film is that it forces the rest of us--those of us who stand outside the circle--to take off our blinkers and see just how fragile our democracy really is, and how easily it is sundered by racism, fear, and our own failure to act against injustice." - Martha Cameron, Justice For Detainees

    “The filmmaker has really captured the human cost and real-life consequences of the 9/11 arrests…very compelling.” - Lucas Guttentag, American Civil Liberties Union

    "Brothers and Others exposes the human toll of an anti-terrorism investigation that has led to the interrogation and detention of more than a thousand non-citizens targeted on their religion and ethnicity but has yet to yield any criminal indictments for terrorist activities.” - Nancy Chang, Center for Constitutional Rights
