Islam Unknown is a two-part collection of eight conversations with unconventional Muslim intellectuals. Dutch philosopher Fons Elders engages the thinkers in probing discussion on topics including gender, economics, sharia, secularism, colonialism, and the nature of religious authority.

What emerges is a nuanced and illuminating series of contemporary perspectives on one of the world's great religions. Each episode also includes beautiful footage of Islamic art and Muslims going about their daily lives and prayers.
A much-needed corrective to popular Western perceptions of Muslims, it is hoped that the film will help contribute to a new understanding of the diversity of Islam. (2012, each part 104 min, digital)

Part Two features Reza Aslan, Anouar Majid, Omer Özsoy, and Mehmet Asutay.
