|Iranian doc explores Asian, African folk songs on Prophet Muhammad (S)||
Entitled “Songs of Muhammad”, the documentary has no narration and shows performances of songs in various parts of Asia, producer Mohammad-Ali Hossein-nejad said in a press release on Wednesday.
Fourteen countries from the two continents were selected for the documentary project and the countries were divided among four filmmakers, he added.
Shahram Alidi worked on regions in Iran, Turkey, Iraq, Pakistan and India, and Mahmudreza Sani covered regions in Algeria, Sudan, Comoro Islands, Kenya and Tanzania.
Reza Abiat worked in Turkmenistan and Siavash Ebrahimzadeh focused on Brunei, Indonesia and some Southeast Asian countries including Thailand.
“‘Songs of Muhammad’ shows the Muslim nations’ solidarity. It depicts how the nations, despite the differences in their ethnic, geographical and language origins, demonstrate their love and respect for the great Prophet of Islam (S) in their songs,” Hossein-nejad stated.
He said that the director will make a sequel to “songs of Muhammad”, which will focus on regions in European and American countries.
“Songs of Muhammad” is scheduled to be screened in the documentary section of the 31st Fajr International Film Festival, which opens in Tehran today.
