Tasa’ol تساؤل is pleased to invite you to participate in its upcoming digital project: “Longing: Homeland and Sect”, which focuses on the Bahraini film, Longing حنين, directed by Hussain Al Hulaibi and written by Khalid Al Rowaie.
The project is made up of a series of articles, videos, and podcasts which will be published on www.tasaol.org, timed with a film screening of “Longing حنين” in September.
“Longing: Homeland and Sect” will analyse issues of sectarianism, religious extremism, and patriarchal sectarianism through a variety of written, audio-visual and digital mediums, with the aim of reaching better understandings of ourselves, our society and our identities.
We invite all writers, bloggers, film critics, activists and cinema enthusiasts to participate in the project through one of the following options:
- Film review article
- Analytical article discussing a different topic within the film
- Opinion editorial discussing the film from a personal point of view
- Short video collecting audience reactions to the film screening
