New 'Allah' doc ready to raise a ruckus

Dubowski vows to screen pic in every Muslim nation

Sandi Dubowski, who won the Teddy gay and lesbian award in 2001 for his controversial doc "Trembling Before G-d," may cause an even bigger stir with "In the Name of Allah," which explores the struggles of homosexual Muslims.

Gay Indian Muslim helmer Parvez Sharma is directing the pic, which looks at gay, lesbian, and transgender Muslims across the Muslim and Western worlds.

"The world right now needs to understand Islam, and these are the most unlikely storytellers of Islam," Dubowski said, who is producing 'Allah.'

Doc will undoubtedly prove an even thornier film to export than "Trembling."

Sharma and Dubowski plan to submit the pic to all major festivals in the Muslim world as well as in the West, but if it's rejected, Dubowski said, "We'll find ways of screening it in every Muslim nation, even if it's underground."

Dubowski already faced problems with the international release of "Trembling Before G-d." Pic faced protests and bans in South Africa, Mexico and Baltimore.

But Dubowski has managed to open doors in the Hasidic and Orthodox communities in Israel, U.S. and U.K. and has toured the world over the past five years doing 800 live events with diverse religious and secular groups.


Who will win the battle of the radical victims - Gays or Muslims?



I get the feeling the ROP will yearn for the days when it was just a cartoon they had to deal with.

Who will win the battle of the radical victims - Gays or Muslims? That would make an interesting poll question...

Somewhere on the Islamic version of Arfcom, a user known as The_Queer_Slayer is commenting on this.

I'm glad they are going to make this movie. The very predicable reaction from the Islamic world will should help to convince the liberals that radical Islam is a bigger enemy to what they believe than conservative Americans.

Which one?

I dont think that will go over well.

I was flipping through the channels and they had this thing on Jewish gays - many Hasidic and Orthadox.

I found one part funny. This guy asked a high ranking Rabbi if being gay was a sin. And he said that if a man lays with another man, it was a sin. And the guy replied - Well - i dont do that.

You dont do that?

No? I do other things.

Other things, like what?

Its funny that the Rabbi was completely clueless about "other things".

Anyway - I changed the channel to an ATeam rerun then.
