My Writings. My Thoughts.
This is the full, fifteen minute version of Arab in America (recently discovered in wmv format sitting on an ftp server). The movie did not officially end up this way. Right before we sent the film to Cannes, we re-edited the film away from this version because we didn’t like pacing. Looking back at it four years later, I am positive that this is the best edit of Arab in America I’ve ever seen and wish we had officially released this version instead… And since we haven’t officially released the film yet, we decided to give away this gem for free until by some miracle, Five on Fifty Films gets to make the Feature Film or get the Arab Short distributed. Anyway, until then… Enjoy!

“It’s been an honor and a pleasure to come to know and work with all of you”.
Good morning everyone! As many of you know, the Arab in America Feature Film Project is a project that I’ve been working on for a very long time. Over the last six years, I’ve met and worked with some of the most talented people America has to offer. I’d like to take this time to thank them all very much for their hard work, loyal dedication, and cherished friendships.
The Final Draft of the Arab in America feature screenplay is now, officially finished! It’s been a long time coming, and I can now say, without a doubt, that it’s perfect.
There’s many people to thank – and there’s no way I’m going to be able to remember them all right now, but if you’re out there – you know who you are. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.
We’re now in talks with various parties and I can honestly say that for the first time in a while, things are looking very promising. I can’t go into details for the obvious reasons – but we might have an actual shot at getting this made.
Keep checking back for more updates as they become available! If you’re interested in taking a look at our AWESOME Pitch Packet or the AWESOME Feature Screenplay, don’t hesitate to shoot me an email. Onward!
