On the 20th September the Film Initiative Festival in Cologn, Germany saw the screening of Fitrah. A first for the Envelope pushing feature as its never been shown in Germany before. Imam Muhsin Hendricks, Founder and Executive Director of The Inner Circle attended the screening.
With a mix crowd of more than a hundred people, the audience consisted not only of Muslims but those of other Faiths as well. What followed was a Q and A unpacking the subject matter of Queer and Muslim as well as a probing of TIC’s pro-activity around homophobia in other countries.
Fitrah was well received as a breath of fresh air, a long awaited response to a homophobic interpretation of Qur’anic text.
