Director Statement: Allah is Great is a short Road Movie, a simple story, in which I wanted to capture the essence of the 6 years I spent in the Indian subcontinent. In particular, it is an attempt to showcase the absolute faith in humanity and optimism towards life, which I witnessed in this fabulous country.
The film is also a subtle reflection on the role of Islam in the contemporary world. It is an artistic attempt to give a decisive response to the growing Islamophobia and intolerance we witness today. Allah is Great has been presented in over 20 film festivals worldwide and has won 6 awards across Europe and Asia.
