   CELEBRATING ETHNICITY

This series of eight short video documentaries, filmed and edited by Erik Friedl and produced by Jonathan Friedlander, showcases the public celebrations of Middle Eastern American communities. These festivals, while conforming to the format of American multicultural fests complete with booths, entertainment, and politicians speaking proudly about ethnic pride and American values, also point to the diversity of the Middle Eastern American community and its place in the cultural mosaic of the United States.
