Assia Boundaoui’s THE FEELING OF BEING WATCHED will be broadcast on October 14 as part of the 2019 season of the PBS documentary series POV. The film follows Boundaoui as she uncovers the shocking story of her Arab-American community’s surveillance by the FBI long before 9/11.
In the Arab-American neighborhood outside of Chicago where journalist and filmmaker Assia Boundaoui grew up, most of her neighbors think they have been under surveillance for over a decade. While investigating their experiences, Assia uncovers tens of thousands of pages of FBI documents that prove her hometown was the subject of one of the largest counter terrorism investigations ever conducted in the U.S. before 9/11, code-named “Operation Vulgar Betrayal.”
