Short Film on Hijab. Beautiful film.
Why are people saddened when a dog dies in a movie but when humans die no one really cares…. This is one messed up society (?)
There is an excellent documentary film on how Arabs are portrayed negatively in Hollywood films. It really makes you think why such scenes are even used - probably a tool to twist the people’s views to dislike and think lowly of Arabs. Even children’s movies such as Disney’s Aladdin degrades Arabs to such an extent.
Please watch the documentary at www.filmsforaction.org/Watch/Reel_Bad_Arabs/
What are your opinions?
I know many of us are on summer vacation and are sitting at home many hours during this blessed month. Many of us can’t recite Qur’an and duas the entire day and need some kind of entertainment. Many of the movies and shows contain sinful material which we should be avoiding to keep our fasts healthy. I suggest you watch an Iranian series called The Mukhtar Narrative which can be found English subbed at http://www.shiasource.com/drive/self/iranian-serials-and-films/the-mukhtar-narrative/
It is about Mokhtar Al-Thaqafi’s revenge for Karbala. Each episode is about 45 minutes long so it should last you to at least the end of this holy month.
