Arabs Abroad: The Designer and the Atomic Scientist

Two remarkable stories from Arab immigrants to Germany and the United States – one a logo designer, the other an atomic scientist.

Arabs Abroad: The Designer & the Atomic Scientist profiles two people who have built highly successful, yet quite different, lives in countries beyond their Arab homelands.

The film meets an Iraqi graphic designer living in Germany – a man whose work is seen by millions – and a Palestinian-American atomic scientist whose research with the smallest of particles brings life-changing benefits to people around the world.

Decades after they moved, both remain connected to their roots, each – in their own way – giving something back their region of origin. While stories about migrants and refugees from the Middle East are often simply about their journeys, Arabs Abroad explores what happens after these people arrive at their destination.
