A Son's Sacrifice
A Son's Sacrifice follows the coming-of-age story of Imran, a young first-generation Muslim American who confronts his Muslim roots and his immigrant father's traditions, while simultaneously learning how to live in harmony in the multiethnic, multifaith city of New York.
Imran takes over his father's halal slaughterhouse and, on the holiest day of the year, must lead his community in a sacrifice that will define him as a Muslim, as an American, and as a son.
Filmmakers Yoni Brook and Musa Syeed, an interfaith team of first-generation Muslim and Jewish Americans, use the food we eat to explore the passing on of traditions and issues of intergenerational conflict.
A Son's Sacrifice is screening at film festivals, schools, and community centers around the world. It won "Best Documentary Short" at the Tribeca Film Festival and the "Audience Award for Short Film" at SILVERDOCS (AFI/Discovery Channel Documentary Film Festival). It will air nationally on PBS' Independent Lens series in January 2008.
