A number of emailed comments have been received by the production team:
This comment was for the executive producer Emma Kehoe who is based at Southwark Council – “the Mosque documentary launch was outstanding, the attendance was very good, so many people. I enjoyed the panel, especially the young girl from the radio station (eclectic productions/reprezent); her responses to some of the difficult questions were very mature and detailed. The evening was a great success and without your vision this would not have happened.”
This doctoral student said – “The fact that it has been split into sections that can be watched separately allows it to fit different approaches and purposes. I also liked the way the DVD intertwines different voices and points of view: the youth, the police, the mosques and imams, etc. Likewise, I found really interesting the historical account of the development of the Muslim communities in London and in Southwark, in particular.”
From an Australian academic to CTVT’s Chris Haydon – “Hossein and I thoroughly enjoyed seeing the product of your amazing work in Southwark. I hope more people get to see it to help dispel stereotypes and fears.”
From Southwark PCT – “its greatest strength is the way it captures the great diversity of the Muslim community in Southwark.”
Here are quick comments left for us by Muslims and non-Muslims after the Tate Modern launch of our latest educational DVD:
Very interesting … Excellent & thought provoking
Such an illuminating experience tonight
The future looks brighter
Really informative and insightful, lots of potential
I’m a non-muslim but have always held interest – I feel I understand the religion and their practices a lot more – thanks !
Interesting, informative & challenging (you found some excellent spokespersons for real Islam), we need to hear more
This idea of a DVD film to help explain Islam & Muslims is a good start / continuation ?
Great, really informative
Well presented, glad I came. Wish more debate.
A triumph ! Brilliantly produced and very informative, a great job.
Some fantastic work to educate the community and bring the local people to understand the large muslim population
Excellent, to everyone, MashaAllah
A second film on the ‘Church’ – to look at the similar range of news/issues/situations in Christianity
Excellent resource for discussion and awareness
Absolutely excellent & great filming, hope it will help
Great DVD, really helpful
I’m glad I came. I live 10 minutes from the mosque in Woking yet I know nothing of it. Now there’s a challenge. Well done !
