Out of Status 

(dir. Pia Sawhney & Sanjna Singh, 2004, 70min)

'In post 9/11 America, the curtailment of civil liberties in the name of national security has had an enduring impact on individuals of Muslim background. This community has been alienated by selective enforcement of a new and existing immigration policy. Families are being separated and communities uprooted. This film follows three families whose lives were dramatically changed after 9/11.' - From SAWNET.
