ISLAM NEEDS A NEW MEDIA DEBATE! IN THE CONTEXT OF DOK.FEST
Film screening and discussion
The planned mosque construction in Berlin-Pankow in 2008 provoked a citizen’s action group. From reports of their talks, the film “MOSCHEE DE” reconstructs the stages of a cultural battle, which in the meantime is being fought throughout Germany. Wherever you look, Islam is in the headlines in a recurrently negative light. Why is it not possible in these times for reporters to give unprejudiced accounts of Islamic culture? Does Islam need a new media debate?
Film: “Moschee DE”, Germany 2016, Mina Salehpour, Michał Honnens, 61 mins.
Discussion: Mina Salehpour (Director), Benjamin Idriz (Chairman of the Munich Forum fur Islam)
