2) Detroit-based director Rola Nashef has worked tirelessly on her film “Detroit Unleaded” and just received news that the film will premiere at this years Toronto International Film Festival– a huge accolade. A brief summary pulled from the film’s FB page: “Between Detroit and Arab-America, Sami works behind the bulletproof glass of a 24-hour gas station with his cousin Mike. Inside this unique East-side neighborhood, the station is more than just a pit-stop for rolling papers and fake perfume. When Najlah walks in, Sami’s shift becomes anything but routine.” A trailer can’t be located at this point, but get more info on the film by visiting the film festival site here.
