Wild About Amreeka

My friends Lisa Truitt and Nikki Lowry with National Geographic Entertainment messaged to let me know the website, YouTube trailer, Facebook page, and Twitter feed are all up for Amreeka, a wonderful new film by Cherien Dabis.

Nat Geo is distributing Amreeka—the “coming to America” story of one Palestinian family. The film was a hit with audiences and critics at both Sundance and Cannes. It gets released in cities across the United States this September.

I fanned the movie’s Facebook page, where you can share your or your family’s own story. And I’m planning to see the film opening night here in D.C. Comment if you’d like to join me!
