A Muslim Story Through a Jewish Lens

A new film made by Muslim-Jewish duo Musa Syeed and Yoni Brook has won the International Documentary Association award for best short documentary.

“A Son’s Sacrifice” tells the story of Imram, a young Muslim American who is taking over his father’s neighborhood slaughterhouse in New York City. Imram is of Bangladeshi and Puerto Rican descent, and the film focuses on his struggle to come to terms with his own identity as an American and a Muslim while gaining acceptance in the conservative community of his father. The film will air January 22, 2008, on PBS’s Independent Lens series.
