"Is this a dream?"

Thomas (Tommy-Tom) Verrette’s feature film, I Am The Bluebird, is premiering tonight in Atlanta, hosted by the Atlanta Film Festival!  If you guys don’t know who Tom is, he’s a co-writer of the Arab in America feature screenplay!  So if you’re in Atlanta or in St. Petersburg, FL – you can watch I Am The Bluebird!  Colin and I have been watching cuts of this film since 2007, and I can be completely honest with you when I say that it’s really fantastic.  Check out the Atlanta Film Festival & the Sunscreen Film Festival’s websites for ticketing info and directions.  Also, don’t forget to check out iamthebluebird.com!

And the most humbling thing out of all this coverage is Wake Forest University’s new course MLS 833, Re-imaging Islam in the West, where Arab in America will be discussed, critiqued, and debated alongside my hero’s essay/book/documentary: Jack Shaheen’s Reel Bad Arabs.  Check out the link below to go see more information on WFU’s new course.
