The film about Islam in Russia is screening in Europe

Berlin, October 9, 2019

The screenings of the Tatarstan film "Mullah" (Imam) are going on these days in European cities. The other day the film was shown in Frankfurt-am-Main.

“The movie made a great impression on the German audience, and some of them even cried”, told the “Tatar-inform” agency the head of the International Union of Tatar Women “Khanum” Gulnur Dautova.

According to Dautova, the idea to show the film "Mullah" to the European audience appeared this year at Sabantui festival in Leipzig. “I love the work of Tufan Minnullin, but I could not often come to Tatarstan to watch his performances. When I heard that in 2018 was shot a feature film based on the play “Mullah”, I wanted to watch it and show it to Europeans, local Tatars”, she said. 

The idea was supported by many Tatar communities. The film "Mullah" has already been shown in Berlin and Frankfurt, this week the screenings will be held in Geneva, Vienna and Prague. In Europe the movie is represented by its producer Marat Akhmetshin. “The Baltic countries and Italy also wanted to show the film, but they did not manage to organize the shows,” Dautova added.

“The movie shows that Russia is the historical homeland not only of Russians, but also Tatars and other nationalities. This is a story about how Russian society in the post-soviet years sought for life values. The film explains that Islam is a religion of peace and kindness. It calls you to think it over. The audience was very satisfied”, said the activist.
