1700% Project: Mistaken for Muslim

My friend, the amazing dancer Prumsodun Ok, turned me on to this video project by artist Anida Yoeu Ali and filmmaker Masahiro Sugano. Prum is the dancer in the video, which also features over 100 people from Chicagoland. The images are accompanied by a poem composed of anti-Muslim hate crime reports - which rose an astronomical 1700% post-9/11.
