When a Caribbean-born South Asian man is roughed up on the street because he "looks like a Arab", his American-born son is outraged. Ignoring his parent's advice to let it go, this young man dresses up in traditional Arabic dress and walks the street as a kind of shark bait for bigots. This politicized Kung Fu film raises issues of racial profiling and vigilantism.

BIG HEAD PEOPLE is an animated political sketch comedy series created by Monteria Ivey & Stephan Dweck, featuring the voices of the "Goon Squad" comedy troupe (with animation by Andre Sutherland). Why "Big Head People" Because the world they inhabit is remarkably similar to ours... filled with provocative, politically explosive situations that require BIG ideas, from people with BIG mouths, and BIG heads to match. In an age where political correctness is used as a buzzword to mean "keep quiet," the BIG HEAD PEOPLE have something to say... and they'll make you laugh while you think.
