as salaamu alaykum,
What came to mind when reading about this documentary is a very interesting clip I saw recently called "The Danger of a Single Story". In it, a Nigerian writer talks about how when we know or constantly hear only one particular story about a country, people, religion, etc then our understanding becomes narrowed to only that. Two very powerful statements she says:The single story shows a people as one thing - as only one thing - over and over again and that is what they become.The problem with the single story is not that it is untrue - but that it is incomplete. They make that single story the only story.
I think this is what we often see with coverage of the Middle East. The young people are restless and dissenting, activists are shut down and shut out, women are unhappy, etc. etc. While these things may be true or have elements of truth in them, especially in the countries run by oppressive and unprincipled government, it is unfortunate that that is what the Middle East has become in its entirety - as if there are no other layers or history or context.
In short: it's been done MTV. How about some depth or taking it from a new angle?
