In Search of Bengali Harlem

Directed by Alaudin Ullah, Vivek Bald

Actor Alaudin Ullah has been typecast throughout his career, but relates more to a typical New Yorker than his Bangladeshi Muslim parents. Upon realizing he only ever saw them as stereotypes, Alaudin decides to visit the areas where his parents grew up. On the way, he unearthed a lost history in which South Asian Muslims, African Americans, and Puerto Ricans forged an extraordinary community.

Directors Vivek Bald, Alaudin Ullah and editor, Beyza Boyacioğlu expected to attend.

This film is co-presented by 3rd i, ASATA (Alliance of South Asians Taking Action) and the Berkeley South Asian Radical History Walking Tour.
