Help Fund TV Series Fighting Islamophobia
We are making a TV series and it’s going to be awesome. Truthfully, we can only do this with your support. So let us tell you a bit about us and our idea and you jump on board if you like what you hear/read. Deal?
Here we are, two very different yet similar types of immigrants. One fine day, Zehra with roots in Pakistan, Marco with his in Italy, both residents of Canada, make a couple of important, life-altering decisions:
There is too much misinformation about minorities and Muslims in particular floating about. There is a glaring and highly concerning rise in hate-incidents and (shockingly) votes, actual votes, for people who fuel this hate with their lies. Nuance eludes them even more than facts. Or vice versa. So we decide we must do something about this.
Marco is an accomplished Filmmaker. Zehra has tons of theatre and non-profit experience. We shall merge our talents and write a funny, entertaining and educational show that will draw upon our similarities. We will create characters that exemplify real life. Both Muslim and Italian. Yes, we realize that one of these is ethnicity and the other religion. (Watch the show to discover why. But help us make it first, yea?). And we shall make these characters shine through excellent production quality.
Fast forward to today and we have a real-life company, a pilot episode script and enthusiasm for days. Nay. Years.
This is going to be fun. It’s also going to be very hard work. And we need an incredible team to make it happen. Funders are an essential part of that team. Partner with us to ensure this vision becomes a reality. Together, we can make this script rise from the digital pages to the screens we feast on.
Can entertainment change the world? Can it help shape public and popular opinion? We sure think so. Actually, we know so. And if you do as well, then let’s do this together.
