Many Muslim countries have recently seen a rise in a new cinematic genre which crosses conventional borders and unites various cinematic currents, including experimental film. What's new is a heightened striving for personal expression of content and aesthetics.

The panel, Cinema and the Koran, will deal with the directors and the distinct cinematic culture of these regions, in addition to the resistance against the reception of such films in Germany.

Organisers: Munich Adult Education Centre [Münchner Volkshochschule] and the Munich Museum of Film
