Film Independent Members, you and a guest are invited to watch Mo in our Film Independent Presents Online Screening Room, powered by Vision Media. A special pre-recorded conversation with creator/executive producer/star Mohammed “Mo” Amer, moderated by SiriusXM host and comedian Dean Obeidallah, is included as part of this screening experience.
Mo Najjar straddles the line between two cultures, three languages and a ton of bullshit as a Palestinian refugee constantly living one step away from asylum on the path to U.S. citizenship. His family — including his resilient and spiritual mother, sister and older brother — flee to Houston, Texas. Laughing the pain away, Mo learns to adapt to his new world, though getting ahead in life comes with several setbacks.
Mo is streaming exclusively on Netflix.
