LOVE JIHADIS EVERYWHERE!

And yes, they are all showing up in large numbers at the New York theater where we are playing.

Get tickets at IFC with a list of showtimes

Many amazing discussions and panels are coming up in the next few days and those are at www.ajihadforlove.com

In the meantime emails like this make this Jihad so worthwhile for me and all of us.

Hi Parvez,

I just saw the documentary in New York City. I really have no words to express how much I admire its remarkable courage and vision. As a gay Muslim, I've had a mighty struggle adjusting to my homosexuality. I'm ashamed to say that I'm still struggling at 43! When I told my family for the first time that I was gay (last year), my mother told me menacingly that the Koran says I should be hung by my toes. Horrifying, no? In any event, I think your film is a revolutionary act. It will, needless to say, give hope and empower many, many people and most importantly, could actually save lives. Your work is a gift.
Hamid

This JIHAD IS ON FIRE

September 2007 is when I started (with a finished film, my first) and now some 49 countries and 8 million people later, the whole world is talking. The movement around this work has begun worldwide. We will be screening next year around the world and yes in Muslim countries as well.
