The Making of Beyond Sacred
 
 
We are proud to share with you this short documentary that follows the creation process of Beyond Sacred: Voices of Muslim Identity. Beyond Sacred, originally commissioned by LPAC, explores the diverse experiences of Muslims in the U.S. The five young participants vary in many ways, but share the common experience of coming of age in a post-9/11 New York City, in a time of rising Islamophobia. Beyond Sacred uses the arts to increase community dialogue around difference and fosters greater understanding among Muslim and non-Muslim communities.
