Film: Submission
Written by James Mitchell   

We are moving this week's general meeting from Tuesday to Friday, so that we have a room with a projector. The meeting will be Friday, 27 February, 7:00 p.m., 259 Dwinelle

We will be showing the short and controversial film "Submission" by Theo van Gogh. We will have a discussion afterward.Submission

Muslim fundamentalists tend to overreact to any perceived criticism of the basic tenets of their culture and theology. One of the most brutal examples of this occurred on November 2, 2004, when Dutch filmmaker Theo van Gogh was murdered on an Amsterdam street by a Muslim fundamentalist.

The crime was centered on the fury many Muslim extremists felt over van Gogh’s short film “Submission,” which dared to question how certain Koranic passages led to the parochial Islamic culture’s view that abusing women is ordained by Allah.
“Submission” only runs 11 minutes, yet it is a striking and provocative short that mixes an artistic avant garde style with a harsh critical attack on a culture of Islamic misogyny.

Friday, 27 February, 7:00 p.m., 259 Dwinelle

I hope you can join us to take part in this event!
