directed by Konrad Aderer

Enemy Alien, a first-person documentary, is the gripping story of the fight to free Farouk Abdel-Muhti, a gentle but indomitable Palestinian-born human rights activist detained in a post-9/11 sweep of Muslim immigrants. Beaten, transferred from prison to prison and locked in solitary confinement, Farouk continued to fight for the rights of other detainees, and paid the ultimate price for his courage. Told through the eyes of the filmmaker, the grandson of Japanese Americans interned during World War II, this documentary takes on unprecedented intimacy and historical resonance.
