'ISLAM BEGAN AS A STRANGE THING, AND WILL BECOME THUS AGAIN, AS IT WAS AT THE BEGINNING. BLESSED, THEREFORE, ARE THE STRANGERS.’
After 5 year’s work - writing, traveling, researching, filming and editing - we are extremely pleased to announce that our documentary ‘Blessed Are The Strangers’ is complete!
By highlighting the beautiful story of one of the UK’s most diverse Muslim communities, it is our hope that this film can make a positive contribution to the ongoing debates surrounding issues such as Islamaphobia, extremism and cultural integration.
We can learn a great deal from the successes (and failures) the community has had along the way. And through the reflections of the characters we follow in the film we get a clear picture of what Islam really is, much clearer at least than that which is generally painted in the mainstream media.

The journey continues…
