Hosted by the Centre for Cultural Studies, the European & World premiere of GOD IS NOT DEAD! will take place on Monday 8 October, at Goldsmiths, University of London.
“GOD IS NOT DEAD!”
EUROPEAN/WORLD PREMIERE – Monday 8 October 2012, 6:30pm
GOLDSMITHS, UNIVERSITY OF LONDON, CENTRE FOR CULTURAL STUDIES
Directed by young Turkish filmmaker Bahar K?l?ç, “GOD IS NOT DEAD!” is a journey that cuts across the realms of music, politics and intercultural dialogue.
Shot in London, Berlin, Frankfurt and Istanbul, the documentary investigates European Muslims’ resistance against the epidemic of “Islamophobia” and their endeavour to transform the demonized visage of Islam in the West through music, creative expression, political activism and redefining the concept of “hybridity”.
The incredibly diverse stances, creative practices and routes of thinking displayed by the people in focus of “GOD IS NOT DEAD!” demonstrate a wealth that is unknown not only to the Western world who is prone to be infected by the virus of cultural exclusivist discourses but also to the Orient who’s suffering from amnesia.
“GOD IS NOT DEAD!” features exclusive interviews with and footage from Fun^Da^Mental and Aki Nawaz, The Kominas, Poetic Pilgrimage, Mecca2Medina, Mohammed Yahya, Nomadic Poet (The Planets), Quest Rah, Style Islam (Melih and Yeliz Kesmen), Sayfoudin (Germany) and Professor John Hutnyk (Goldsmiths, University of London).
The screening will be followed by a Q&A Session with the director, the creative staff and featured names.
The event is FREE OF CHARGE.
All free thinkers and “rebels with noble causes” are welcome to join us.
