Muslim Life In Post 9/11 America

A new documentary, 'An Act of Worship', is painting an in-depth portrait of what life has been like for Muslim-Americans who came of age after 9/11, and the impact of anti-Muslim rhetoric and policy.

Mehdi talks to award-winning director Nausheen Dadabhoy about the news events that have sparked Islamophobia and how Muslim Americans have endured — and often overcome — the backlash.

An Act of Worship explores the past 30 years of American history through the perspective of Muslims across the U.S. who have lived it. Observational footage of activists who came of age after 9/11 along with intimate testimonials offer a window into community’s perspective on pivotal moments and policies that continue to impact Muslim Americans today. A co-presentation with the Center for Asian American Media.
