This weekend, Murray State's Cinema International features the 2009 film "Amreeka."  It's the story of a Palestinian Christian divorcee and her son who immigrate to America during the run-up to the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq.  They confront prejudice both within and without as they try to navigate a new world.  Todd Hatton speaks with Cinema International Director Dr. Therese Saint Paul and coordinator of MSU's Religious Studies Department Dr. Christine Lindner about "Amreeka."
