The bombardment of Laughter.

Born in 1776, America has seen some dark days - from the freedom struggle, to The Civil War, to fighting segregation a hundred years later. Today everything is perfect, right? Far from it. This hilarious doc starts with our ideals of a just society, but interspersed with real life footage from the recent rhetoric moving across the country, it presents a harsh reality check. Muslim comedians break new ground through their travelling standup act. They visit tough places where they aren't welcome, but they know that if they show the world they are ordinary folks, with everyday issues, they will demystify and pave the way for love. Experience this, and share it forward, because only laughter breaks walls when nothing else can. - Shwetha VR
