Detroit Unleaded

I met Rola Nashef at a filmmaking event and she's committed to getting more Arab American stories told. For a limited time you watch her short film Detroit Unleaded online.

It's a comedic drama about an Arab-owned gas station in a predominantly African American neighborhood on Detroit’s East Side; a place where widely diverse customers and gas station workers come in and out of each others lives, exploring themes of race, economics, friendship and love, through the personal identities and encounters that shape the Arab American and immigrant experience.

A feature length film based off the short is in the works.
