"American Ramadan" is a bold and exciting new look at the American Muslim experience, produced and masterfully captured by first time director Naeem Randhawa. "American Ramadan" explores and reveals the holiest of rituals, shared by the Abrahamic traditions, but practiced by more -- the act of Fasting for Faith. As diverse as the fabric of America, from the divorced Dad, the student coping with school, work and family life, the convert to Islam and his Indonesian wife, an interracial couple, and the wife of an incarcerated businessman -- the reality of life is vividly and emotionally witnessed on film. Contrast to the media stereotypes of Muslims as sheltered and outcasts -- the documentary illustrates the everyday struggles, fears, hopes and challenges that everyone, Muslim or not, faces everyday. From the everyday busy lives of the families, the film follows the individuals as they strive to maintain their rhythm, and find time for worship and faith through the act of Fasting and prayer.."
