WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Yussef El Guindi's dark comedy examines the paranoia permeating throughout America today. Back of the Throat begins with an innocuous Homeland Security investigation and quickly moves into a subversive discovery of racial profiling, civil liberties and what you should and shouldn't keep in your home. Following a heinous terrorist attack, Khaled, an Arab-American writer is visited by two government officials. What begins as a friendly inquiry soon devolves into a chilling, full-blown investigation of his presumed ties to terrorists. At times surreal and comic, Back of the Throat examines the way in which facts (or lies), evidence (like porn magazines!) and (mis)perceptions are used to distort the truth and how matters of race impact the relationship between the accusers and the accused. Damaso Rodriguez directs.
