The film explores a long line of degrading images of Arabs--from Bedouin bandits and submissive maidens to sinister sheikhs and gun-wielding "terrorists"--along the way offering devastating insights into the origin of these stereotypic images, their development at key points in US history, and why they matter so much today.</p> <details><summary>Runtime: 50</summary> <summary>Release date: 2006-11-01</summary></details> </article>
