The Imam and The Pastor DVD
THE IMAM AND THE PASTOR - DVD

Documentary about the reconciliation between Imam Muhammad Ashafa and Pastor James Wuye, and the peace-making initiatives which have flowed from it. The film, narrated by Rageh Omaar, shows that it is possible for the perpetrators of inter-religious violence to become instigators of peace. It is both a story of forgiveness and a case study of grass-root initiatives to rebuild communities torn apart by conflict. DVD $32 (personal use) For multiple showings: $70 (Non profit bodies) $100 (Tertiary Educational/Training)

A free study guide for use with The Imam and the Pastor can be downloaded here.
Leaders notes, for use when studying the film in a group are also available here.
