Edward Said: On Orientalism includes an engaging and lavishly illustrated interview with the late Edward Said, whose book Orientalism has been profoundly influential in a diverse range of disciplines since its publication in 1978. Said talks about the context within which the book was conceived, its main themes, and how its original thesis relates to the contemporary understanding of "the Orient" as represented in the mass media.

Introduction to the End of an Argument features a combination of film, documentary news coverage, and excerpts of "live" footage shot in the West Bank and Gaza strip. This film critiques representations of the Middle East, Arab culture, and the Palestinian people produced by the West.
