- Organizer: A/P/A Bridge

Cosponsored by A/P/A BRIDGE, the NYU Muslim Students Association, Asian/Pacific/American Institute at NYU, and NYU Muslim Law Students Association.
This documentary uses intimate vérité footage to follow the story of Adama Bah, a Muslim teenager in New York City suspected of being a “potential” suicide bomber, and her desperate efforts to keep her family from unraveling. ADAMA provides a timely perspective on the experiences of Muslims at a time when Islam has been unfairly equated with violence and terror.
The post-screening panel features Adama Bah, Tarek Ismail (Attorney, Brooklyn Defender Services), Faiza Patel (Co-Director of the Liberty & National Security Program, Brennan Center for Justice), and Asad Dandia (NYU Grad Student, victim of surveillance). Moderated by Naz Ahmad (Attorney, Creating Law Enforcement Accountability & Responsibility).
