Join CAIR-Minnesota and Minnesotans Against Islamophobia for a screening of the award-winning feature film “The Feeling of Being Watched.”
Algerian-American artist, journalist, activist, and filmmaker Assia Boundaoui will be in attendance to give audience members an intimate understanding of her film and her family’s struggle with surveillance. At a time where police entrapment runs rampant and individuals are persecuted for their faith, it is more important now than ever to firmly understand the police state, surveillance, and how fear & manipulation have trumped our civil liberties and privacy. There will also be space for community members to share their thoughts and feelings on the surveillance of our community.
Film Synopsis: When journalist Assia Boundaoui investigates rumors of surveillance in her Arab-American neighborhood in Chicago, she uncovers one of the largest FBI terrorism probes conducted before 9/11 and reveals its enduring impact on the community.
