Arab-American multimedia artist and filmmaker Jackie Reem Salloum combines footage from scores of movies and television programs to create her epic remix 'Planet of the Arabs'. Its a trailer-esque montage spectacle of Hollywood's relentless vilification and dehumanization of Arabs and Muslims. Inspired by the book 'Reel Bad Arabs' by Dr. Jack Shaheen. Out of 1000 films that have Arab & Muslim characters (from years 1896 to 2000) 12 were postive depictions, 52 were even handed and the rest of the 900 or so were negative, The project is meant to reveal the systematic racism towards Arabs and Muslims propagated by American cinema.

'Planet of the Arabs' was awarded "Best Editor" at the Cinematexas film festival and was a 2005 Sundance Film Festival selection. Find out more on Jackies website: http://www.jsalloum.org
