Exhausted from listening to empty rhetoric about the fight against terrorism from Washington, D.C. neoconservatives (and suspicious of many assertions made by the Bush administration), Arab-American filmmaker Bassam Haddad decided to seek the truth for himself, camera-in-hand, and thus spark an impassioned dialogue between right-wing American policymakers and Middle Eastern political factions. Thus began the penetrating investigative documentary Arabs and Terrorism. Haddad's method of activism involves shooting interviews with political power-players on each side of the transcontinental (and transideological) fence - American and Middle Eastern; recording each interview on his laptop; and having each interviewee view and respond to allegations made by the other side. The result is a documentary that dares to journey into waters seldom treaded by other filmmakers, by traveling right to the core of the ideological debate that lies behind the war on terror and investigating what the Arab people actually think, believe and desire -- independent of media bias.
