University of Glasgow: Islamic Studies Alumni Society - Movie Night

Saturday 15th March @ 7pm
The society regularly meets up at someones house and watches a topical movie about Islam, religion or culture. Very chilled out, relaxed. Although for alumni, we welcome anyone who wishes to take part in discussions on Islam. We will be watching Le Grande Voyage - a film by Ismael Ferroukhi.

"Reda, summoned to accompany his father on a pilgrimage to Mecca, complies reluctantly - as he preparing for his baccalaureat and, even more important, has a secret love relationship. The trip across Europe in a broken-down car is also the departure of his father: upon arrival in Mecca, both Reda and his father are not the characters they were at the start of the movie. Avoiding the hackneyed theme of the return to the homeland, the film uses the departure to renew a connection between two generation."

If you are interested in joining us please contact the Alumni Secretary: for further details.

Also, Alina Mirza from Heer Productions ( will be giving a talk on Pakistani Film and Arts on Tuesday 11th March 2008, 6:00-7:30pm, Departmant of Theology and Religious Studies, Upper Seminar Room, 4 The Square, University of Glasgow. This is open to all. One not to be missed!
