- African Americans & Islam
- "African Americans make up over a third of the Muslims in America. This documentary film captures their history - starting from the time of Prophet Muhammad in Makkah (Saudi Arabia) through the great civilizations and explorations of West African Muslims and to their inhumane enslavement and systematic removal of religion in the new world. The film touches on the struggles of African Americans over the centuries, the civil rights movement and particularly on the life and sacrifice of Malcolm X. Filmed in the US, in various parts of Africa and in the Middle East, this unique production chronicles the Islamic spirit that resides within the African American community" --Container.

- Islam an American faith
- "Islam and America. For many, these two ideas are not compatible. Many Muslims and many Americans feel that there is a great divide: that America can never reconcile with Islam; and that Muslims can never live in peace with America. This film aims to dispel such myths. It starts from a historical perspective; highlighting the fact that Muslims were already present in the "New World" prior to the coming of the Europeans. And it ends in a post 9-11 America where some are questioning their identity; whereas others are defining their American Muslim identity. This is a unique film that answers some of the most pressing questions of today's times" --Container.
