"An important and compelling addition to the resources available that highlight the experiences of Muslims in the US in the post 9/11 era. In following a selection of families, it allows viewers into the lives of regular people who have been impacted by Islamophobia and its structural manifestations. With only half of Americans knowing a Muslim personally, WHO'S NEXT? provides a window into the lives of our fellow Americans who happen to be Muslim as well as of those who have sought refuge here."
Meira Neggaz, Executive Director, Institute for Social Policy and Understanding


"The best and most profound movie I've seen recently...As unsettling as it is important. It is an extremely well-made documentary, uncluttered, never resorting to inflated dramatics. The drama is in the stories of the families. WHO'S NEXT? is the type of artistic expression essential to those who cherish the concept of democracy."
David Rothenberg, host, Any Saturday, WBAI


"Poignant...WHO'S NEXT? explores the current challenges faced by Muslims in the United States - along with their resilient efforts to raise and educate their children and contribute to a better society."

"An urgent, inspiring message with beautiful and moving portraits of American Muslims and non-Muslims living with mutual respect and care in a politically divisive age. WHO'S NEXT? shows the reality of Islamophobia in the US, but brings hope and humor as well. An ideal film ... viewing during the Trump presidency and for many years to come."

"Who's Next? is a moving portrayal of the unrelenting assault on the lives and livelihoods of Muslims in post-9/11 America. The film provides ... a powerful tool for helping ... to challenge manufactured narratives of an Islamic threat and to contemplate constructive ways of building bridges across racial and religious difference."
Todd Green, Associate Professor of Religion, Luther College, Author, The Fear of Islam: An Introduction to Islamophobia in the West
