Travel Ban is about being brown and immigrant in America seen through the eyes of comedians of Middle Eastern background.

   

Directed by Samy Chouia

 

 

This film looks into the fabric of today’s society through the eyes of immigrant comics that deal with challenges performing and living in a world of a political firestorm that effects families and lifestyles.

   

After seeing the film, I realized that this movie also educates us to see how much our society is influenced by what we see in the news, whether it is true  or not.

 

Instead of relying on what we see and hear  in bias journalism we all should trust our own judgements and experiences to make decisions.

   

 

It brings immigrant and international comics together sharing stories of their journey into making a splash in the industry. It is real, gritty and thought provoking, with so much fictional content out there it’s refreshing to see real people talk about real situations. 

 

The truth is….laughter cures. It is the ultimate remedy for what aches this country and society. This unique film gives everyone the opportunity to unplug from the technology driven world and see for yourself the real power of comedy.

 

Bring the family, buy some popcorn and get ready for a truly genuine experience that will make you laugh, think and laugh again.
