Since its premiere at the Islamic Society of North America’s (ISNA) Film Festival on July 4th, 2009, “Journey into America” has received much acclaim and praise, from the strong film review it received from The Khaleej Times in Dubai to its invitations to world class film festivals like C&CIFF in southern France and to the El Sawy International Film Festival in Cairo, Egypt. Now, the State Department has shown interest in the film, per a recent article ‘New Documentary Film Explores Muslim Experience in America’ by Ahmed Mohammad.
The State Department’s Bureau of International Information Program (IIP) has a world wide audience that prints material in Arabic, Chinese, French, Persian, Russian and Spanish. The purpose of this division of the State Department is to engage with international audiences on issues which the United States government finds imperative to American interests. The publication of Mr. Mohammad’s article on American.gov not only gives our documentary an immense amount of publicity in the global arena of politics and international relations but it also proves that high ranking American officials have endorsed the message which we communicated.
