GLADBECK, Germany – A galaxy of stars have shot the last scene of anti-Islamophobia movie, a film produced by Turkey to counter negative conceptions about Muslims and uncover increasing levels of anti-Muslim sentiments worldwide.
“Not only Muslims but the people of other religions are suffering from the negative impact of Islamophobia,” said Omer Sarikaya, the movie’s director, Al-Bawaba reported citing Anadolu Agency.
The film, Islamophobia, aims to shed light on the tolerant reality of Islam and to counter Islamophobia that has spread in the West.
The filmmaker and cinematographer, Sarikaya, told AA earlier that the film crew has come a long way in terms of the project, which focuses on “Peace and Forgiveness.”
“In this movie, we are keen to define the tolerance and mercy of Islam for the whole world, and we will prove that terrorism is not linked to Islam,” he said.
The last scene of the movie, called Islamophobia, was shot in a Turkish mosque in Gladbeck, a town in northwestern Germany.
The film features actors from 38 countries including Mike Mitchell, who is known for his performances in Gladiator and Braveheart.
Hollywood stars including Robert De Niro, Alec Baldwin, Jackie Chan and Mel Gibson are also taking part as honorary guests in the film, which highlights the values of peace and security advocated by Islam.
