Bilal's Stand (2009)

Showcased at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival, Bilal's Stand ( is about an upright black Muslim teen who works at his family's taxi stand in Detroit. But Bilal has dreams to attend a top university, and when his two lives collide, Bilal is forced to decide between keeping The Stand alive - and living the only life he has ever known - or taking a shot at social mobility. Based on a true story, UM grad Sharrief's debut feature is a freshly crafted film filled with heart and authenticity that transports audiences to a world rarely seen onscreen and heralds the arrival of its filmmaker as a new voice in American independent cinema. Sharrief will give a brief talk back after the film.
