This award-winning documentary explores how the July 2006 War in Lebanon between Israel and Hezbollah bitterly divided the Arab and Jewish communities in Metro Detroit. News coverage of the war was controversial and condemned by both sides. The documentary combines footage of the war and Detroit-area demonstrations, with interviews of community leaders, journalists, performers, and people who were in the Middle East during the war, to present the Middle East conflict and the parallel conflict that erupted in Michigan.
The DVD also has these bonus features:
*The hour-long panel convened in Feb. 2007. Journalists, activists and media scholars discussed coverage of the Arab American community in Detroit.
*The hour-long panel convened in Sept. 2010 after the premiere of this documentary. The panel featured sources interviewed in the film.
