In my Cultural Diversity class, Muslim Americans is my thesis topic. I am expanding my knowledge of present, as well as past. I have watched several movies on Islam, Judaism, and Arab cultures. Does anyone have any suggestions of movies I can get access to in the USA? Preferably for free. I'm on a student budget. Maybe on Netflix, or Hulu, or PFTV.
I recommend for you " The message 1977" this film about the beginening of Islam and story of Muhammed (the messenger of God)
You choose very intersting topics. I admire that you try to ask mulem about resourses. Also, I suggest for you to read the Qu'raan . You will never understand Islam unless you read the Qu'raan and speak to Muslems people.
I hope I help you.
Do you only want movies? I haven't seen any movies but theres plenty of videos you can watch. The deen show features alot on American muslims http://thedeenshow.com/cat/Videos
Although, i'm not sure if you'll be able to reference this type of thing for your thesis. If i find anything useful i'll send it.
Here are a few that I give a thumb's up:
1. The Lemon Tree
2. 5 Broken Cameras
3. Osama (not about Bin Laden!)
4. Where Do We Go Now?
6. Captain Abu Raed
The last one won first prize at the film festival in my city. Check it out.
i hope you like this film
I will recommend to watch a TV program called " A civilization maker " , It covers the biography of Omar ibn el khatab ,but you will get rich information about the islamic civilization , and here is the link you will find these Episodes are translated in English and French.

there's a film called "Kingdom of Heaven"...
although, it's more for entertainment than for serious researches...
yet, still, I think it's a good movie...

if you wana to know a correct information about arab and islam don't ever watch movies , try the trusted translation of islamic arabic book , and for sure you should start with a translation of the meaning of the Holy Qura'an
