Monks and Muslims: Finding Faith in Algeria
Anisa Mehdi, award-winning documentary filmmaker of the PBS Frontline film Muslims, explores in this film the daring relationship between Muslims and Catholics in Algeria during the bloody Algerian civil war. Monks and Muslims: Finding Faith in Algeria will focus on a community of French Trappist monks for whom faith and good works mattered more than theology and ritual. Surrounded by war and terror that consumed Algeria in the 1990s, the monks showed inspiring spirit and courage, fighting for the lives of beleaguered Muslims as they put their own lives at risk. Their story provides a powerful example of multifaith community, even in the face of violent divide.
Whetstone Productions is currently seeking field production funds for Monks and Muslims: Finding Faith in Algeria. Director Anisa Mehdi plans to return to France and Algeria to wrap up filming in 2008.Â Support for the film is growing with contributions from interested individuals such as Cardinal Theordore E. McCarrick.
