How many photographs of laughing Muslims have you seen in American media?
Right. But they do have senses of humor, and you can see those at work in “Allah Made Me Funny: Live in Concert.”
The documentary shows three Muslim-American comics – Preacher Moss, Azhar Usman and Mohammed Amer – exploring stereotypes and preconceptions. They poke fun at themselves, their communities, government, human nature and the predicament of living in post 9-11 America, and indie-scene artists play music.
There'll be a free screening Saturday at 2 p.m. in the Public Library at Tryon and Sixth streets, and a discussion will follow. It's part of the Open Forum of interfaith dialogues sponsored by the International Museum of Muslim Cultures.
Never miss a local story.
If you enjoyed the first one, which was set around a screening of the film “Prince Among Slaves,” you'll be glad to know both movies have the same director and editor, Andrea Kalin and David Grossbach. For more details, call 704-992-6537.
