Forson producer, Ash-har Quraishi, will host a screening of this documentary, which will be followed by a discussion and Q&A.

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.
