      West Shore Film Series to host film "USA vs Al-Arian"
        
      Winner of the Jury Prize, Best Film Award at the 8th Annual New Orleans International Human Rights Film Festival, "USA vs AL-ARIAN" documents the American-Muslim family Al-Arian's desperate attempt to fight terrorism charges leveled by the US Government.

      In February 2003, university professor and pro-Palestinian civil rights activist Sami Al-Arian was arrested in Tampa, Florida, charged with providing material support to a terror organization. For two-and-a-half years he was held in solitary confinement, denied basic privileges and given limited access to his attorneys.

      The film follows Sami Al-Arian's wife Nahla and their five children throughout his 6 month-long trial. It explores the battle waged both in court and in the media and chronicles a nightmare come to life, as a man is prosecuted for his beliefs rather than his actions.
        
      "USA vs AL-ARIAN" raises questions on whether it is possible for a man like Sami Al-Arian to receive a fair trial in the United States. It presents democracy in a new light in a post-9/11 culture of fear, where "security measures" trump free speech and punishment is meted out in the name of protection.
        
      Presented in cooperation with The Council on American-Islamic Relations  
      (Film length: 98 minutes)
       
      WHEN: Saturday, June 9th, 2012, at 7:00pm
      WHERE: West Shore Unitarian Universalist Church, 20401 Hilliard Blvd.
      Rocky River, Ohio 44116 (Free Parking)
        
      COST: The film series is free and open to the public (donations gratefully accepted).
