Synopsis: The events of Ny’s Dirty Laundry take place 18 days after the WTC bombings when Arab Muslims became the target of brutal attacks, racial profiles and slurs as the country sorts through grief and fear. New York’s dirty laundry is exposed and put through a rough cycle when a Caribbean Mom looses twenty dollars at an Arab run laundromat and a woman tries to get a Muslim cab driver to take her home to Brooklyn. (Based on a true story. 75 mins) Ny’s Dirty Laundry got invited to The Cannes Film Festival!
