Seks, revolucija i islam

Režiser: Nefise Oskal Lorenzen
Zemlja: Norveška
Trajanje: 81 minut
Dokumentarni film

U 1960-im, hipiji su se zalagali za ideju seksualne revolucije. Nisu dobili ni fetve ni telohranitelje. Danas se Sejran Ateš – tursko-nemačka pravnica, feministkinja i jedna od prvih imama u Evropi – bori za seksualnu revoluciju unutar islama. Zauzvrat je upucana, dobila je fetve i pretnje smrću i sada mora da živi pod stalnom policijskom zaštitom. Sejran veruje da je jedini način borbe protiv radikalnog islama kroz islam, zbog čega u njenoj liberalnoj džamiji ne postoji rodna segregacija ili isključenje na osnovu seksualne orijentacije. Ovo je priča o Sejraninoj ličnoj i ideološkoj borbi za modernizaciju islama. Njena potraga za promenama vodi je na putovanje po svetu, susrećući se sa različitim ljudima vezanim za veru, od seksualnih radnica u nemačkom bordelu do ujgurske LGBTQ omladine i tradicionalnih ženskih imama u Kini. To je takođe putovanje kroz njen život, od njenih skromnih početaka kao muslimanke u turskim sirotinjskim četvrtima do žene vođe koja se usudila da izazove svoju religiju. Sejran se buni protiv ekstremizma i mržnje u ime mira i ljubavi.

Seyran Ateş: Sex, Revolution and Islam

Director: Nefise Özkal Lorentzen
Country of Origin: Norway
Duration: 81 minutes
Documentary

In the 1960s, the hippies championed the idea of a sexual revolution. They received neither Fatwas nor bodyguards. Today, Seyran Ateş – a Turkish- German lawyer, feminist, and one of the first female imams in Europe – is fighting for a sexual revolution within Islam. In return, she was shot, received fatwas and death threats, and now has to live under constant police protection. Seyran believes the only way to fight against radical Islam is through Islam, which is why, in her liberal mosque, there is no gender segregation or exclusion based on sexual orientation. This is the story of Seyran’s personal and ideological fight for the modernization of Islam. Her quest for change takes her on a journey around the world, meeting with different people connected through faith, from sex workers in a German brothel to Uyghur LGBTQ youth and traditional female imams in China. It is also a journey through Seyran’s life, from her humble beginnings as a Muslim girl in Turkey’s slums to a female leader daring to challenge her own religion. Seyran rebels against extremism and hate in the name of peace and love.
