Community Cinema Film Screening - Wham! Bam! Islam!
Dr. Naif Al-Mutawa, the subject of the film, will be present after the screening to will talk about the film, THE 99 and social entrepreneurship in the Middle East. I really admire Dr Naif Al Mutawa and this is a great opportnity to meet him and learn more about what he does.
I've featured Wham! Bam! Islam! before and I'm glad it's finally going to be screened in Dubai, although I do wish it got released in cinemas across the country, instead of a one night screening at a gallery.
WHAM! BAM! ISLAM! tells the story of Dr. Naif Al-Mutawa and his venture to create the first team of superheroes from the Muslim world called THE 99. Following the tumultuous journey of THE 99 from concept to reality, from acclaim to censure by Islam’s cultural gatekeepers, from the edge of bankruptcy to plans for theme parks and an animation series, Al-Mutawa dodges cultural minefields and tries to tackle the harsh realities of the global marketplace while doggedly pursuing his vision to bring new heroes to Muslim children while re-introducing Islam to the West.
