UN in your language

"Among the Believers" by Hemal Trivedi and Mohammed Naqvi

Thursday 18 May, 19:00 (Cinéma Gallerie)

Runtime: 84'

Among the Believers - poster - documentary film screening, Ciné-ONUThe bloody power struggle between Muslim extremists and secular leaders for control of Pakistani children’s education receives clear, dramatically up-close expression in “Among the Believers.” Activists and local teachers seek to stem the Taliban tide, the government sends troops to destroy mosques, and two students, one on either side of the divide, cope with the consequences of their choices in this must-see documentary from Hemal Trivedi and Mohammed Ali Naqvi. It is the film’s centerpiece, however, consisting of an interview with fanatical cleric Maulana Aziz, that chills to the bone.

The film will be followed by a panel discussion with:

  • Moad El Boudaati - Prevention and community outreach specialist in Brussels;
  • Paul d’Auchamp - Deputy Regional Representative, Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) in Brussels;
  • Saliha Ben Ali - Founder of Society Against Violent Extremism Belgium.

The film is in English and has a run time of 1 hour and 24 minutes
