This program presents urban American reflections. In Chicago, a new generation of filmmakers has been coming up, who make use of documentary approaches together with traditions from art and film avant-garde. A generation who projects their own views and who asks questions instead of having answers already ready.

Muhammad And Jane

• Usama Alshaibi US/IQ Muhammad And Jane 80 min, DV, 2003
