The first film, Family Gathering, is about Japanese-Americans who were interned during World War II. The other film Voices in Exile: Immigrants in the Amendment features Arabs who immigrated to the United States and have been discriminated against because of their political views. Khaled Abu El-Fadl, a lawyer who has worked extensively on discrimination cases, will speak afterward. Fine Arts graduate student Yasir Sakr, who organized the event, said he planned the event because he is concerned that discrimination against Arabs will increase due to the Persian Gulf War. The films will be shown at 7 p.m. in the Bowl Room in Houston Hall. -- Heidi Gleit
