Canada: Friday Night Reflections – 2 April 2021 (English)
Whether through film, design, or other media, the arts allow individuals to express themselves and their communities and remake the world at large through their work. By harnessing imagination and creativity, filmmaking has the potential to transform people’s lives and mindsets. This evening on Friday Night Reflections, host Kamil Karamali is joined by international broadcast journalist Faridoun Hemani to share his story from behind the camera, traveling the world on assignment, and capturing the work of the Ismaili Imamat over the past four decades. We then meet a group of Canadian Ismaili filmmakers at different stages in their careers to learn more about what it takes to thrive in their field and hear some of the stories they have brought to life through film, television, and broadcasting.
