Adama

Producer/Director David Felix Sutcliffe and produer Su Kim's documentary, Adama, about a 16 year-old East Harlem teen suspected of connections to terrorism, which ran on public television networks, and was online for a limited time thanks to ITVS and WORLD Compass, is now back online permanently it appears for you to watch in full, if you missed it the last time.

Here's the full story on Adama:

On March 24th, 2005, Adama Bah, a 16-year-old Muslim girl, awoke at dawn to discover nearly a dozen armed government agents inside her family’s apartment in East Harlem. She was arrested and taken to a maximum-security juvenile detention center in Pennsylvania. An FBI document leaked to the press mysteriously identified Adama as a “potential” suicide bomber and an “imminent threat to the security of the United States.” After six weeks of public protest and media scrutiny, Adama was released with an ankle bracelet and a deportation order, but no terrorist charges. Still traumatized by the experience of her detention, Adama must drop out of high school and support her four younger siblings when her father is deported to Guinea, Africa. Using intimate verité footage, Adama captures the extreme pressures bearing down on this young Muslim girl and her desperate efforts to keep her family from unraveling.
