Abraham’s Children reviewed in:
Anthropology Review Datababase, June 2011, by Jack David Eller
“In a gentle way, the film illustrates that young Muslims in America struggle successfully to integrate their American identities and their Muslim identities—and that Muslim youths are not only normal people but hold many of the attitudes and values that other Americans wish they could instill in their children”.
School Library Journal (scroll down dot Social Studies)
““It is refreshing to learn history and vocabulary through the teenagers rather than professors or scholars. There is no agenda to this film other than an open, free discussion. Even the most devout of the teenagers lack dogmatism and speak candidly. Highly recommended to foster dialogue about religion.”
Educational Media Reviews Online
“Stark, direct, humorous and serious. [...] Abraham’s Children takes a monumental step in awakening the viewer to the basic similarities shared by all human beings”.
The Daily Record
“Mendham senior Veronica Bann said she was struck by how much the Muslims in the film reminded her of her own Jewish community”.
“The viewer is given the opportunity to encounter them as brothers, neighbours, writers and sportsmen amongst other things.”
Elan: The Guide to Global Muslim Culture
“…elegantly weaves a series of American Muslim children and teenagers’ lives into a work that breaks stereotypes and showcases Islam as it exists and thrives.”
Rik aka Rikomatic’s Blog
“..last week was a big success.”
“..series of intimate and frank profiles…”
The Stewardship Report
“Scenes in this feature film— warm and humorous, engaging and uplifting — lie in stark contrast to the constant and inaccurate drumbeat of angry and threatening Muslims as portrayed in the mainstream media.”
