In March 2005, an FBI document leaked to the press mysteriously identified Adama Bah, a 16-year-old teenager from Harlem, NY, as an “imminent threat to the security of the United States.” Adama provides a timely perspective on the experience of American Muslims when their religion is being equated, by some, with violence and terror.

Critical Acclaim

By inviting Adama to speak for herself, David Felix Sutcliffe’s documentary grants her the sort of voice the US government denies her.
