My girlfriend is taking a class in which she is supposed to pair off with a culture other than her own for a couple of months - get to know the culture, get to know members of said culture, etc. She's chosen Muslims - specifically, Muslims living in America.
Phase One is just watching a couple of films about that culture. What are some of the best films and books (and frankly, any other media I'm not thinking of here) about the experiences of Muslims living in America? Could be Arab, Iranian, Bosnian, Asian, plain old American gringos - the only critical part is that they need to be Muslim. Come to think of it, a work that explores the differences between the different ethnicities of Muslims would be ideal.
I bow to your wisdom. Thanks in advance.
