WHAM! BAM! ISLAM
Dr. Naif Al-Mutawa, a Kuwaiti psychologist, created THE 99, the world's first Muslim comic superheroes. His creation has its roots in Islam and in his belief that Muslim children need heroes. The concept of THE 99, a team of super heroes, is based on the 99 attributes of Allah and has had great success in many parts of the Islamic world. Though not everywhere!
Below, take a look at the trailer from "Wham! Bam! Islam!" It will air on Independent Lens on PBS stations on October 13, 2011
BONUS TRAILER! You'll need to go to Vimeo for this one.
I knew little about this project and almost nothing about Sebastien Wielmans, the creator, but I think it's a very cool, very compelling idea. Just click on the link to view the trailer. Connected Walls New Trailer
