Self Defense

An interview with a veteran of the Mujahedeen from the Soviet war in Afghanistan provides a revealing look at the relationship between personal conviction and global politics. Originally from Mauritania, and now living in New York, he offers thoughts on the events of September 11th that are both candid and provocative.
Part of the TWN Call to Media Action. Following the events of September 11, 2001, Third World Newsreel made a call to media workshop students and other filmmakers to help document people's reactions and concerns as well as the governmental and media activity that had ensued. The result was a collection of short videos that presented a wide range of issues of concern to communities of color and that asked questions largely overlooked in mainstream media at large.
