ABOUT THE MOVIE: The Critically Acclaimed Film is About Arab-Americans, Islam and the American Dream.

Fordson: Faith, Fasting, Football 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.
