Divided We Fall

September 5th, 2011


Who counts as American in a nation divided between "us" and "them"?

Divided We Fall: Americans in the Aftermath is the first feature-length independent documentary film about hate crimes since September 11, 2001.  Today’s resurgence of anti-Muslim rhetoric and violence makes the film relevant now more than ever.

Valarie Kaur was a 20-year-old college student when she set out across America in the aftermath of 9/11, camera in hand, to document hate violence against Sikh, Muslim, and Arab American communities, victimized by the misplaced anger of their fellow Americans. From the still-shocked streets of Ground Zero to the desert towns of the American west, her epic journey confronts the forces unleashed in a time of national crisis – racism and religion, fear and forgiveness – until she finds the heart of America… halfway around the world.
