Enemy Alien

by Konrad Aderer

2011 | Documentary | 81 min

Enemy Alien, a first-person documentary, offers a gripping inside view of the fight to free Farouk Abdel-Muhti, a Palestinian-born human rights activist detained in a post-9/11 sweep of Muslim immigrants. Through the eyes of the young filmmaker, whose Japanese-American grandparents were interned during World War II, this documentary takes on unprecedented immediacy and historical consequence. Enemy Alien breaks new ground in the ongoing public conversation about the human rights of immigrants and refugees in the US.
