Warriors of Faith

90' (GER, ENG subs)

By taking drastic actions against religious extremism, young Muslims nowadays are fighting for a reformed and peaceful Islam in Germany.

The Iraq native, Hassan Geuad hopes to hamper the growing trend of radicalism found amongst young Muslims in Germany. To this end, he has established an initiative geared towards campaigning against the IS on Facebook and in pedestrianised zones. He has assembled a group of young Muslim students to aid in the fight against religious extremism with stimulating and challenging performance art. The intent is to provoke a more forceful response from the Muslim communities to terrorism in Germany.


The proceedings of his initiative act as an avowal from the Muslim community to fight against terrorism. Although, simulating executions and openly opposing the leaders of Islam organisations in Germany endangers Hassan and his group, giving up in not an option!
