Questions from children can be the hardest to answer … especially if they’re about religious extremism.
This film submission to the 2014 60 Second International Film Festival (60SIFF) does a good job of tackling extremism from a child’s perspective:
Created by Furqan Shahid and Asad Noor, “Interfaith” tells the story of a young boy who is a victim of extremist violence. Speaking in Urdu, the boy asks, “Did God tell them to burn my home?” and another boy answers his question.
The 60SIFF accepts film submissions in 10 categories — Peace, Interfaith, Water, Environment, Colors of Your Country, Conflict, Fiction, Comedy, Creative, and Tolerance — and entries cannot exceed 60 seconds.
