    Yet to have attended a meeting. Although I admire Woody Allens brand of existential wit and am a avid fan of his movies, does Blue Jasmine have much to offer the male demographic?

    • Safiyyah S.

      Aamer welcome, I think due to the complexities of the character, I think most of us may relate to the thoughts and feelings she encounters. Also sometimes interesting characters are interesting to analyze and what triggers them to behave a certain way. It challenges us in many ways and asks what would we do in a similar situation. Hope you have watched the trailer.

    Was thinking this would make a very stimulating meet for a group like this: http://www.eastendfilmfestival.com/programme/4849/inch-allah

    Seems like a pretty amazing film.

      I had a look at this film and it does look pretty amazing!

    There are few films on my list (listed below) that I can get copyright for, just need to arrange the venue to screen it. Here is the list: KITE RUNNER (2007)
    TALENTED MR RIPLEY (1999)
    A PROPHET (UN PROPHETE) (2009)
    LIFE OF PI (2012)

    There are many more, which I will add later but please do add films/documentaries to the list that you think would be interesting to analyze. I will see if I can get the copyrights for them.

    We are planning to meetup in Mid August, but some of you have emailed me that you would like to meetup sooner. Therefor I wanted to ask you all whether there is a Film on release which would be interested in Analyzing. I have watched the older version of The Great Gatsby and the character intrigues me! However I would like to know what you would prefer and we can organise something sooner.

      I am open to suggestions, I have not see either version of Great Gatsby,nor read the book therefore wont be able to give an indepth perspective. Bar that and Startrek i am open to suggestions.

      1 · June 19, 2013

    • Safiyyah S.

      Ok well, the older version I found fascinating! Story will be same but it's how it's portrayed on to the screen which will determine whether it captures the character. Everyone will have their own version of the character so it will be interesting to analyze this. I will wait a few days for other suggestions and then confirm the details.

    Interesting title i am curious as to what will be showing. to say i had a favourite film i would first need to see every film made and will be made first, but "la haine" is a good one because not all films need special effects or a a hugh budget, or colour for that matter as the film is in monochrome

    1 · June 16, 2013

    • Safiyyah S.

      Raphael how would you class it? I was pointing the obvious which is how most people would see it.

      I would focus on the story telling aspecct and the way the characters interacted with each other, it was an early example of the acting style used where the audiece is unsure if this is fiction or non fiction, it highlighted what is wrong with the society they are brought up in.

    I am really looking forward to meeting up - what a fantastic opportunity we have to make a positive difference through film.

    June 16, 2013

    • Safiyyah S.

      Helen welcome, yes I think we can learn a great deal from films, documentaries and interviews. It's a wonderful way of enjoying ourselves networking with like minded people.

    Salam,
    Why the first meeting is so far away! :)

    1 · June 15, 2013

    • Safiyyah S.

      Daniel Wa alaykum Salam, inshaAllah we are planning it straight after Ramadhan. Stay tuned, we will inform you. Thank you for joining us.

  • Safiyyah S.

    Welcome to our new members, which film is your favourite and why?

    June 15, 2013

  • Safiyyah S.

    Every event we organise inshaAllah there will be Video footage and Photos to share with you all. Extremely excited for our first one which will be analysing an interesting Film. I wonder which direction the discussion will go afterwards? I find there is always a human connection or an issue which is highlighted. What's interesting is that we can all watch the same thing but have our own unique understanding of the subject. We will not just be bonding, socialising but also learning from each other inshaAllah. Every Producer/Director has a purpose in what they produce and often this is even more interesting to analyse whether their vision/intention was realised. REGISTER at [masked] and join us!

    Hi Safiyyah thanks for starting this group. I would like to analyze films but wondering if you would analyze dramas like Supranos? What an interesting character to analyze?

    1 · June 10, 2013

    • Safiyyah S.

      Yes that's a great idea! However it may be difficult to show just one episode and get a full picture of his character, especially if members haven't seen the whole series. Let see what others think?

      June 10, 2013

    • Fouzia R.

      Personally, I think it would be better to stick to movies because it completes the story.

      1 · June 10, 2013

  • Fouzia R.

    This event should be amazing! To analyse movies from an Islamic perspective is a really inventive and creative idea. It is bound to be enjoyable, educational and spiritually up-lifting, inshaAllah (God-willing).
