"Fordson: Faith, Fasting, Football" (USA, 2011) is  a documentary that follows a predominantly Arab-American high school football team from a working-class Detroit suburb as they practice for their big cross-town rivalry game during Ramadan, revealing a community holding onto its Islamic faith and the American Dream while struggling to gain acceptance in post 9/11 America. Directed by Rashid Ghazi.  (Free pizza and baklava.)
