Directed and told from the point of view of Jewish-American filmmaker Nancy Cooperstein Charney, WHO’S NEXT? examines how the lives of Muslim-Americans have been affected in the aftermath of the September 11th terrorist attacks and exacerberated since the goverment’s 2016 Muslim Ban. WHO’S NEXT? focuses on six Muslim families—citizens and long-time legal residents—from diverse countries and widely different circumstances. In one way or another, all of them have been targeted by federal agencies, hate groups, and even former friends solely on the basis of their religious beliefs.
Family separations, threats of deportation, repeated airport detentions, unexplained travel restrictions, have become part of the daily lives of thousands of Muslims who are innocent of any crimes or even suspicious behavior. As we know, when one group is singled out because of their beliefs, we are all in danger of being next.
