Image from the film My Son the Fanatic
In the aftermath of the Second World War, Europe relied on immigrants for economic growth. Over the past two decades filmmakers have found the experience of Muslim immigrants especially salient as they consider questions of individual identity formation and community belonging. These films concentrate on the daily life and struggles of minority immigrant communities in France, Germany, and the United Kingdom and reveal the complexities of Euro-Muslim culture, religion, and identity today.

This series is sponsored by the Institute for European Studies, Center for the Study of the Middle East, Turkish Language Flagship Center, and the Inner Asian and Uralic National Resource Center.
