“An Alawi friend is making a documentary about Syrian Demonstrations in the US. Here is a preview.
Mohammad’s American Dream in the Sea of Protest is a documentary that attempts to shed light on this current crisis through the actions, concepts and words of Mohammad, a 50-year old Syrian who emigrated to the US in the 80s. Mohammad protests in every US-based demonstration. Where Syrians were taught to fear political participation due to serious consequences, Mohammad discusses learned concepts of democracy and breaking his “fear barrier” in order to demonstrate. Mohammad takes us on an exclusive trip into his politically-charged world where we see various other protestors sharing the same goal of change. Mohammad’s American Dream in the Sea of Protest is a journalistic documentary; the location is America; it is constructed in three parts: fear, freedom, and demonstrations.
