Abstract

This film asks large questions about resistance, oppression, and pan-Arabism within the context of the global War on Terror. A journalist travels to Beirut to uncover the forgotten history of the Zanj revolution in the 9th century Abbasid Caliphate. He meets a Palestinian refugee looking to understand her family's and nation's history. Their quests to find meaning in hidden histories contrast sharply with an American soldier's obsession with wealth.
