The Norwegian documentary "USA vs Al-Arian" premiered April 20, 2007 at the Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival, North America's largest documentary festival, eliciting moviegoers' outrage toward the treatment of the Al-Arian family. The film portrays an American Muslim family facing charges of terrorism through the trial of Sami Al-Arian. Two of his adult children, Abdullah and Leena Al-Arian attended the international premiere, and were touched by the standing ovation from the audience. “We weren't sure how a North-American audience would react to the film, but the responses we got were overwhelmingly positive,” Leena said. “At the reception after the film, we were approached by many people in the film industry who said they were appalled by the treatment of our father by the U.S. government.”
