When the show Homeland needed graffiti for their set, the Arabian Street Artists were happy to take on the job. They made global headlines when an episode aired this October that showed the message “Homeland is racist” and other subversive messages written in Arabic. Homeland is Not a Series explores the artists’ response to the show and the critique that motivated the hack.

Homeland is Not A Series has premiered today, timed to the show’s season finale, on the Field of Vision site, as part of their mission to share urgent journalistic stories through creative documentary filmmaking.

Field of Vision is a filmmaker-driven visual journalism film unit co-created by Laura Poitras, AJ Schnack and Charlotte Cook that pairs filmmakers with developing and ongoing stories around the globe.
