Montgomery College Peace and Justice Studies community and the Paul Peck Humanities Institute present Akbar Ahmed’s Noor, an unprecedented Indian-Pakistani collaboration. Noor tells the story of three young Muslim men who are faced with the kidnapping of their younger sister by unidentified soldiers during Ramadan. As the brothers grapple with how to rescue Noor while preserving their honor, they undergo the same crisis within Islam that is occurring throughout the world as fundamentalism, mysticism, and modernity clash. Directed and produced by Manjula Kumar. (MDGentleReader)
