Summary
The story of Sharif El-Gamal, developer of the 'Ground Zero Mosque' in Lower Manhattan. With unfettered and exclusive access to Sharif's life and family over the course of two years, the film tracks Sharif's struggle to bring his project, a controversial Muslim community center two blocks from the site of Ground Zero, to fruition. Told in observational style, Building Babel is a portrait of American identity ten years on from September 11th - who are Muslims, and who are Americans? Where does the line get drawn, and who gets to draw it?
