"The whole film is a complete eye-opener to the sheer scale and impact that radical ideologies impact the lives of young children and how they shape Pakistan today." – The Ransom Note
Charismatic cleric Abdul Aziz Ghazi, an ISIS supporter and Taliban ally, is waging jihad against the Pakistani state. His dream is to impose a strict version of Shariah law throughout the country, as a model for the world. His Holy War is motivated by the government's 2007 leveling of his flagship mosque that killed his mother, brother, only son and 150 students.
With unprecedented access, 'Among the Believers' follows Aziz on his very personal quest to create an Islamic utopia, during the bloodiest period in Pakistan's modern history. Intimate and shocking, the film offers rare insights into the ideological battles shaping Pakistan and the Muslim world.

This film juxtaposes current geographical and political boundaries of India with surviving human, emotional and spiritual bridges. All the borders of India are made of water, which make them fluid, inclusive and accessible to neighbours. The same adjectives interpreted in the political jargon means the menace of porosity, infiltration and threat to security.
'Arrival' by Mani Kaul
To the city come men, women, fruits, flowers, vegetables, goats and sheep – all ready for consumption. It is the process of consumption/exploitation that forms the core of the film. In a collage of images held together by an engaging soundtrack we are shown the brutality and dehumanisation of city life.
