Gazette Premium Content Screening, cast chat part of Arab museum benefit

Associated Press Published: April 27, 2014

DEARBORN, Mich. (AP) — A Lebanon-born, Michigan-raised filmmaker will round up leading cast members from her debut feature for an event that's doubling as a benefit for the Arab American National Museum.

Rola Nashef's "Detroit Unleaded" will be screened Saturday at the Writers Guild Theater in Beverly Hills, Calif.

Nashef and several stars also will participate in a question-and-answer session moderated by veteran TV producer and director Asaad Kelada.

The event is presented by the Southern California Friends of the AANM, the abbreviation for the museum based in the Detroit suburb of Dearborn. The group is composed of Los Angeles-based community leaders of Arab descent.

The made-in-the-Motor City film tells the story of a young Arab-American who finds love after being forced to take over his father's gas station.
