Once a city that was 90% Polish, Hamtramck became the ﬁrst Muslim majority city in America. Hamtramck, USA follows Kamal Rahman, a Bangladeshi candidate for Mayor, Fadel al-Marsoumi, a 23-year-old Iraqi immigrant running for City Council, as well as the current mayor, Karen Majewski, Hamtramck’s ﬁrst female mayor in the city’s 100 year lineage of Polish mayors. Throughout the election, candidates look to build support, coalitions, and partnerships across ethnic and religious lines.
Razi Jafri is a Detroit-based documentary photographer and ﬁlmmaker whose work focuses on religion, race, politics, immigration, and the changing cultural landscape in America. His own experience as a Muslim immigrant has informed much of his work.
Justin Feltman worked on several independent ﬁlms, such as I am I and Struck by Lightning, as well as several documentaries. He has produced several short ﬁlms, music videos, and a web series.
