Many seem to think Baran was the best Foreign film of this year. Yet, Oscars Neglected Baran by not nominating it.

I think Baran was spurned because of its Islamic content and the anti-Islam climate in the US following 9/11.

Baran wasn't the only movie spurned. Tanzania's all black cast film Maangamizi wasn't nominated because of its African theme.

Notice that the French/Italians and other European countries dominate the foreign language category.
