“The Holy Land Five” Documentary

US vs. The Holy Land Five is a powerful documentary exposing the devastating consequences of Islamophobia and injustices in US justice systems. It follows an acclaimed charity, The Holy Land Foundation (HLF), founded by five Palestinian-American founders in 1989 that quickly grew to become the largest Muslim charity organization within America – until 9/11 when it was targeted under government scrutiny alleging donations were sent to charities linked with Hamas. After two trials involving anonymous witness testimony, problematic translations and jury rejection of reliable government witnesses all five defendants received sentences ranging from 15 -65 years inspiring this groundbreaking feature film examining events leading up to their convictions while urging us all to be mindful on our journey towards true justice for everyone everywhere!
