The Illinois Humanities Council has awarded a grant of $5,000 to in-progress Kartemquin Documentary American Arab.
Here is a statement from director/producer Usama Alshaibi and Associate Producer Tristan Hanson:
"Arab American is thrilled to announce a $5,000 grant from the Illinois Humanities Council in support of the project. We want to thank the Council for their vote of confidence, which has been a great boost to our spirits as we move full speed ahead with our 2012 fundraising efforts."
American Arab asks: "What does it mean to be an Arab living in America today?" and is currently in post-prdocution. You can help support the completion of the film by donating here.
With a noted tradition of nurturing emerging talent and acting as a leading voice for independent media, Kartemquin is building on more than 50 years of history as Chicago’s documentary powerhouse.
