The Romey Lynchings
The Romey project records and narrates the story of a widespread pattern of racially-motivated hostility, vitriol and physical abuse directed at early Arab immigrants who came to, worked, and lived in America between the 1890s and the 1930s.
Cedars in the Pines: The Lebanese in North Carolina
The documentary, Cedars in the Pines, narrates the lives of Lebanese immigrants who have journeyed from Lebanon to North Carolina and labored here to build new homes, raise families and enrich the state with their culture and hard work. It tells of a legacy that is as much about great accomplishments as it rests in the quiet and unassuming. A singular doctor in a small mountain town or a car mechanic at a Piedmont crossroads become vital threads in the fabric of this state: Lebanese cedars among the pines of North Carolina.
