"We talk about intoxicants. We reduce the problem to cocaine and crack. But indeed, it is more than cocaine and crack. In fact, the problem is not crack and cocaine, the problem is that we live in a society that has made a virtue out of being high. This society arouses within you desires and passions that make you seek to escape reality by being high."

Imam Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin (H. Rap. Brown)

Taken from his book “Revolution by the Book” (page 49)

The upcoming film Finding Bibi follows filmmaker Bita Haidarian, a girl who knows more about MTV than Al Jazeera, as she smashes worldwide stereotypes about women in the Middle East. The overwhelming trailer response has inspired us to build an organization around the movie. Our goal: to bridge the gap between east and west by sharing the compelling stories of women - some empowered, others seeking empowerment - from both hemispheres. 

Definitely can’t wait to watch this.
