My name is Hafsah Dabiri and I'm the author of a book called Basirah the Basketballer says Insha'Allah published by Ruqaya's Bookshelf!
Our vision is to create a film that will transform the landscape of both representation of the Muslim community and black Muslims but also entertainment as we know it.
It is very rare that we stumble upon movies that accurately reflects Islam, cultural diversity and the real journey of learning and development that comes with faith and living in the West.
Our Team Will Be Majority BME and Muslim!
We want to bring together a BME and Muslim majority cast with a BME and Muslim majority production team to transform the well loved character, Basirah, into a movie that will change the world.
What Is The Movie About?
This movie will be based in London, showing the authentic journey of a young Black and Muslim girl who strives to walk with faith and confidence.
This isn't your typical 'Muslim girl' needs saving movie. This isn't your 'she wears a hijab WOW' movie. This is real, raw, comedic, cheeky and most of all representative. Right now, the world needs to meet Basirah. A movie like this is much overdue and to make it happen we need your help!
