    A film by Yavuz Turgul. (Turkish with English subtitles. 123 minutes, 2003.)

    This film is about the epic adventures of the legendary Baran the Bandit following his release from prison. After serving 35 years, it is no surprise that the world has changed dramatically. Still, Baran can’t help but be shocked to discover that his home village is now underwater thanks to the construction of a new dam. He then heads for Istanbul to get revenge upon his former best friend, the man who snitched on him and stole his lover, Keje. Along the way, Baran teams up with Cumali, a tough young punk who finds the thief’s old-fashioned ways rather quaint. When Cumali gets into deep trouble with a crime boss, Baran adds another vengeful task to his roster.

    American Muslim Communities: Security Risk or Source of Hope?

    New York Wednesday - March 22, 2006     06:30 PM

    A panel discussion featuring: Daniel Sutherland, Officer for Civil Rights and Civil Liberties at the United States Department of Homeland Security; Muqtedar Khan, Assistant Professor of Political Science and International Relations at the University of Delaware and Nonresident Fellow at the Brookings Institution; and Naheed Qureshi, National Field Organizer with the American Civil Liberties Union. Moderated by Mustapha Tlili, founder and director of New York University’s Dialogues: Islamic World-U.S.-The West.

    In the post-9/11 era, Muslim populations in the U.S. and throughout the West have come under intense scrutiny, primarily for security reasons but also for the social and cultural repercussions of their presence. The panel will examine the pressures upon Muslim communities in the U.S., asking: How should a community’s civil rights and civil liberties be balanced against security concerns? What measures is the U.S. government taking to build relationships with American Muslims and where is there room for improvement? How does the integration of Muslim communities differ between the U.S. and other Western countries? How are American Muslims represented in political life and in civil society? Are American Muslims poised to serve as ambassadors between the Islamic world and the West?
