“Enemy Alien” wins PACAlliance “Courage Award”!

Farouk Abdel-Muhti, Palestinian activist and subject of Konrad Aderer’s film “Enemy Alien” has won the Pacific Asian Community Alliance’s “Courage Award 2012″.

The award went to Abdel-Muhti, “whose bright courage can never be dimmed by tyranny”. DisOrient was proud to have filmmaker Konrad Aderer in attendance to field questions about his experiences fighting for Abdel-Muhti’s release from detainment, and to accept the award on Abdel-Muhti’s behalf as an instrumental person who brought this story to light.

Thank you from all of us at DisOrient!

About disorientfilm

DisOrient Asian American Film Festival of Oregon is a social justice film festival dedicated to deconstructing the media stereotypes of Asians and Asian Americans as "Orientals." We believe in the power of film-as-art to educate, heal and improve the lives of people by giving voice to their experiences. Started in 2006 by artists, educators, and activists, DisOrient is a grassroots and volunteer-run film festival committed to presenting honest portrayals of the diversity of the Asian American experience. When selecting new and exciting films for our festival, we use the W.E.B. DuBois standard of "for us, by us, or about us" that are recent and undistributed works.
