"Assimilation No, Integration Yes. 2006 Running Time 24 mins- Al Jazeera International, Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, Phil Cox, Bruce Anus. Sweden has the reputation of a wealthy, developed, post-industrial society. But beneath this seeming tranquility, lies a simmering tension between Muslim immigrants and native Swedes. Filmmaker Shameen Obaid-Chinoy visits the southern city of Malmo to find out how first and second generation Muslims are integrating into their adopted homeland. In the immigrant ghetto of Rosengard, she explores a moderate Mosque under siege, young Muslims struggling to be accepted by Swedish society and an inspirational Iranian hip hop artist who is trying to address the problems of the children of Rosengard."--Sharmeen Obaid Films Website.
"Highway of Tears. 2006 Running Time 21 mins- Al Jazeera International, Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, Allan Code, Michael Fuller Families all along Canada's Highway 16 - a 425-mile stretch of road that cuts through pine forests, rivers and remote Indigenous reserves in central British Columbia - are searching for their missing loved ones. The families have dubbed the road the "Highway of Tears," and Amnesty International estimates that 32 aboriginal Canadian women have gone missing in the last three decades along the highway, which runs from Prince Rupert to Prince George. Aboriginal Canadians claim the Royal Canadian Mounted Police have made no headway in any of the cases and feel discriminated against."--Sharmeen Obaid Films Website.
