Overview

Sixteen years after 9/11, American Muslims still face an uphill battle in the national imagination. The current political climate spurred on by constant fear mongering during this election cycle, as well as the saturation of negative stereotypes that flood the news and media continue to make Muslims the target of suspicion and hostility. Building on its work in The Secret Life of Scientists, Seftel Productions' new series, The Secret Life of Muslims, uses humor and empathy to subvert stereotypes and reveal the truth about American Muslims: fascinating careers, unexpected talents, and inspiring accomplishments, providing a counter-narrative to the rampant Islamophobia prevalent in the media. Comedian Negin Farsad kicks off the evening with a short comedy set and will then welcome Josh Seftel, director of The Secret Life of Muslims, and Khalil Ismail, a Baltimore filmmaker, to the stage to screen two never before seen vignettes from the forthcoming second season of The Secret Life of Muslims. Join us for comedy, a film screening, discussion, and Q&A.
