This afternoon I watched the documentary, Saudis in America, by Fahmi Farouk Farahat, 2008.  The filmmaker introduces us to his friends and family and they answer some tough questions about their thoughts on women’s issues, Americans misconceptions about Saudis and their country, treatment of Saudis in America post 9/11, and life in both countries.  I recommend it to anyone with an interest in modern Saudi Arabia and women in Saudi Arabia. It is warm and informative and especially interesting to me are the interviews with women as I have not met many Saudi women.
