Persons of Interest Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

For her follow-up to 1999's , director Alison MacLean switched gears, teaming with first-time filmmaker Tobias Perse on Persons of Interest, this documentary on the detaining of Muslim-Americans by the U.S. government. In the aftermath of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, many Muslim and Arab-Americans were arrested -- often with no charges brought or legal representation provided -- as part of the United States' sweeping War on Terror. Through interviews with detainees and their families, MacLean and Perse attempt to shed light on the issue and detail the experiences of those imprisoned. Persons of Interest screened in competition at the 2004 Sundance Film Festival. ~ Matthew Tobey, Rovi
