The Jim Holocaust

A film by Jacob Hayek



The Jim Crow Holocaust, imagines a possible near future America, where Muslims are required by law to wear identifying armbands displaying the Islamic crescent and star motif. Amid the fears of a frightened segmented citizenry are the growing whispered rumors of possible internment camps being secretly built. The government is pushing back against the number of new and unfamiliar immigrant cultures in the U. S., even as its resident’s feelings of alienation and sense of powerless to protect themselves continue to spread.
