Film Screening & Discussion | An Islamic Utopian

  • The Green Room #410, 10310-102 Avenue Edmonton, AB (map)

Considered by many as the father of the Iranian Revolution, Ali Shariati is one of the most influential Iranian intellectuals of the 20th century. His work often challenged Islamic thought, questioned authority, and encouraged understanding of social structures. 

During his lifetime, Shariati restored faith in Iran’s young generation by emphasizing the need to live Islam critically so that we can indeed live Islam fully. 

Join us for a film screening of the documentary “Regarding Ali” followed by an open discussion facilitated by Dr. Mojtaba Mahdavi, Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of Alberta. 

All are welcome!
