BBQ Muslims originally produced as a motion picture in 1995; Death threat, in 1998
A foreign film (Canada)
Through humor and the absurd, Zarqa Nawaz spins two entertaining vignettes sure to stimulate dialogue about how the "terrorist" stereotype has the power to influence society as well as its victims. "BBQ Muslims" is a take on the aftermath of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing. In the days following the bombing, there was a media frenzy pointing fingers at the North American Muslim community. Several weeks later, Oklahoma police arrested and convicted Timothy McVeigh, a white American. The cruel irony of that historic moment inspired this offbeat tale of two Muslim American brothers' backyard barbecue mishaps. Death threat tells the story of a young Muslim woman who has written an appallingly bad Harlequin-type novel and is struggling to find a publisher. Depressed, frustrated and irritated after receiving her fifty-ninth rejection, she decides that controversy is the only way to catch a publisher's eye; but her exploitation of cultural stereotypes eventually backfires on her
