PLANET OF THE ARABS


Directed by | Jackie Salloum

Genre fiction  |  Length: 9mins  |  Year of production: 2003


Salloum's traileresque montage of Hollywood's relentless vilification of Arabs and Muslims is informed by the book ‘Reel Bad Arabs' by Jack Shaheen: Of 1,000 films that have Arab and Muslim characters (from 18962000), 12 were positive depictions, 52 were evenhanded and the remainder were negative.
