the feeling of being watched
DIRECTOR: ASSIA BOUNDAOUI
A filmmaker digs into tales of surveillance inside her Arab neighborhood in Chicago’s south suburbs and discovers that her hometown was the subject of the largest FBI terrorism investigation conducted before 9/11. THE FEELING OF BEING WATCHED follows a filmmaker’s personal journey to discover the truth about why her community fell under blanket government surveillance and asks: is it still happening?
