The First Ever Halal Comedy/Action Feature Film of it's kind. Movies that Represent Muslims Worldwide.Stories by us everyone can enjoy!
• Do you know the danger of a single story? A single narrative is only one idea or perspective. Truth is revealed in many tales (Chimamanda Ngozi, 2009). There are over 1.6 billion Muslims around the world, but we are often only being told from one story.
• I have a mission to tell stories by Muslims that everyone can enjoy. In this film we are breaking barriers, demystifying Islamic perspective and busting myths that are so prevalent in popular media.
• This comedy-action is the first of its kind, and I am so excited to finally be able to show Muslims in this genre. We have been working on this project for nearly 2 years. We have a stellar cast with a few BIG SURPRISES. WE CAN ONLY SHARE THE BIG SURPRISES IF WE REACH OUR BUDGET. We need your support to make this a premier movie that will be an integral part of presenting new stories to the global community.
•You know Kickstarter is "all or nothing" so we set our goal lower so we can start production. The actual budget for the film is $250,000, if we can go over our pledge goal to meet the actual budget we can complete the project. Think about it, we only need 250 people to donate $1000 or 2500 people to give $100. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT, Spread the word. EVERYONE & EVERY DOLLAR COUNTS.
