The second film screening for our Let's Talk About It: Muslim Journeys Film Series will be a showing of Fordson: Faith, Fasting, Football. The documentary film is directed and produced by Rashid Ghazi, who graduated from University of Redlands in 1989 with a B.A. in Business and Sociology. The film follows a predominantly Arab-American high school football team in suburban Detroit, Michigan as they train for a big game during the last ten days of Ramadan. Dr. Bill Maury-Holmes, Adjunct Professor of Religious Studies and Assistant Chaplain at University of Redlands, will introduce the film and facilitate a question-and-answer session following the screening. This event will be held on Thursday, February 6, 2014 at Gregory Hall, Room 161, from 7 to 9 p.m.
