No description available, In this sequel to the hilarious and hard hitting i The Adventures of Ali amp Ali and the aXes of Evil i the agitprop collaborative team of Camyar Chai Guillermo Verdecchia and Marcus Youssef turns its idiosyncratic brand of political satire to new global realities br br Following the election of U S president Barack Obama in collective optimism for a more tolerant peaceful and co operative post Bush world spreads to Canada and to the backroom of Salim s Falafel Shoppe in Toronto There Ali Hakim and Ali Ababwa refugee entertainers from the fictitious war torn country of Agraba are inspired to write a stage play in celebration of the new president s message of hope and change The premiere of their i Yo Mama Osbama or How We Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Half Black President i halts abruptly when an RCMP constable arrives at the theatre and arrests the pair for its financial ties to the Agrabanian People s Front an alleged terrorist organization on the Canadian government s watch list br br Continuity becomes more apparent than change when Ali and Ali are swiftly put on trial As the hapless playwrights try to defend themselves in the farcical deportation hearing that unfolds racial and cultural stereotypes are invoked and lampooned as quickly as dubious evidence is presented But in the midst of the biting comedy more serious questions are raised about the cost for some when we endeavour to protect the freedoms of others br br Cast of woman and men, Like many outgoing young women Fatima feels rebellious against parents she sees as strict It just so happens that she is Egyptian born and wears a hijab When anti Muslim graffiti appears on the walls of her school Fatima transfers to a new school The guidance counsellor there Mr E does his best to help Fatima fit in but despite his advice she starts an unlikely friendship with Jorah who has a reputation for anger issues Maybe just maybe Fatima and Jorah start to like like each other br br As their mutual attraction grows the lines Fatima and Jorah cross as they grow closer become the subject of an intense exploration of boundaries personal boundaries cultural boundaries and inherited religious and political boundaries Fatima and Jorah discover that appearances matter they ve been exposed for their whole lives to images that begin to colour their relationship images of the Middle East the working class and how teenage boys and teenage girls behave Put all these reactive factors together in the social laboratory that is a high school and observe is there a solution for Fatima and Jorah br br High school like no other social space throws together people of all histories and backgrounds and young people must decide what they believe in and how far they are willing to go to defend their beliefs Inside a veritable pressure cooker they negotiate cross cultural respect and mutual understanding i Jabber i does its part to challenge appearances and the judgments people make based on those appearances, In the autumn of during Operation Desert Storm two young men one a troubled Canadian soldier the other a teenage Palestinian black marketeer meet in the scorched Qatari desert Breaching the divide of a profound cultural misunderstanding and against a backdrop of massive global conflict these two become unlikely and secret friends This tenuous friendship is severed by the torture and murder of the year old Palestinian inside the Canadian base an act to which the Canadian soldier was at least a witness and perhaps a willing participant br br Weaving poetic drama with myriad documentary sources i A Line in the Sand i rips the benevolent mask off recent western peacekeeping operations and challenges Canada s long treasured national mythology that it is a nation of quiet diplomats It asks us to imagine how horrors like these could be perpetrated with our money in our name and by people much like us br br Cast of three to five men
