“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!
