Believe it or not, I don’t always discuss action and martial arts on this site as there have been quite a few times I’ve delved straight into drama. Fear is one such example here, inspired by actor and martial artist Peter Jang whose numerous stunt and performance credits include online fantasy action staple, Bat In The Sun, as well as the upcoming post Super Bowl LI premiere of 24: Legacy, as well as lead stunt credits on both seasons of Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders.
“Fear” is a fictional drama that tells three concurrent, intertwined stories of American combat veteran suffering from PTSD, his grief-stricken Muslim-American godfather and a bullied teen as a suicide attack in Afghanistan sends a town across the world in Pennsylvania into chaos. They navigate the rocky terrain of intolerance, misunderstanding and fear in their small Midwestern town as Islamophobia grips the nation. With this film, I aim to humanize the struggle of Muslim-Americans, capture the harsh realities of PTSD, show the consequences of ignorance, and inspire understanding and compassion for all.
