We are proud to announce the theatrical release of a radical documentary "Meeting Resitance" and a great article in the Huffington Press about "A Jihad for Love," with music by Richard Horowitz and Sussan Deyhim.

Meeting Resitance

MEETING RESISTANCE was recently covered on World News with Charles Gibson on ABC. The story is entitled "The Movie Starring Iraqi Insurgents." A slightly shorter version of the piece is still running on their website: abcnews.go.com/wn.
The full piece will be on: meetingresistance.com.
And please read: meetingresistance.com/bios

MEETING RESISTANCE directors Steve Connors & Molly Bingham have just returned from a trip to Baghdad where the film was seen by over 850 US troops, US embassy staff, contractors and Iraqis. Audience members at the US military and diplomatic headquarters in Iraq have called the film "essential viewing" and "eye-opening" and MEETING RESISTANCE has now been invited to screen at military institutions across the US to provide alternative perspectives, challenge assumptions, and provide cultural apperception.

A Jihad for Love

Filmed over 5 1/2 years, in 12 countries and 9 languages, "A Jihad for Love" comes from the heart of Islam. Looking beyond a hostile and war-torn present, this film seeks to reclaim the Islamic concept of a greater Jihad, which can mean 'an inner struggle' or 'to strive in the path of God'. In doing so the film and its remarkable subjects move beyond the narrow concept of 'Jihad' as holy war.
