Mooz-lum - A movie about Muslim Americans



This seems like a pretty good movie. The reviews I've read had a positive response, and it seems to offer a variety of views on Muslims, not as this hive-mind group with the same values and opinions, one example as depicted with the protagonist's struggle with his religion in contrast with his strict father. I also think the director Qasim Basir has represented himself and the movie well in the interviews I've seen him in (you can watch his interviews in the video section of the Facebook page). I'd like to be able to watch and support this especially if it seems to be able to give a positive impact, not only in terms giving a much needed positive brush on Muslims in America, but diversity in films in general, so to anyone who's interested hopefully you all could make it to see the movie if it's played in your city - with an enough amount of buzz hopefully it could be distributed internationally soon (as I'm not American). Thoughts?

Edit: Here's the demand page in case the link wasn't clear in the facebook page, and if anyone's interested in the movie but it's not playing in your city yet.
