‘Among the Believers’ (2015) | Followed by Q&A (Skype) with Directors Hemal Trivedi & Mohammed Naqvi
Winner of 9 Awards!
Charismatic cleric Abdul Aziz Ghazi, an ISIS supporter and Taliban ally, is waging jihad against the Pakistani state. His dream is to impose a strict version of Shariah law throughout the country, as a model for the world. His Holy War is motivated by the government’s 2007 leveling of his flagship mosque that killed his mother, brother, only son and 150 students.
With unprecedented access, ‘Among the Believers’ follows Aziz on his very personal quest to create an Islamic utopia, during the bloodiest period in Pakistan’s modern history. Intimate and shocking, the film offers rare insights into the ideological battles shaping Pakistan and the Muslim world.
