Production Talk - "Bani Ibrahim" by Raihan Harun

When it came to my final year of study at the Victorian College of the Arts and the commencement of my thesis film, I was determined to craft one that was both meaningful to me and which conclusively disproves that Islam can in any way condone acts of atrocity and violence against the innocent.

Bani Ibrahim or "Children of Abraham" is a tale of morality set against the backdrop of Australian suburbia that condenses the cognitive dissonance experienced by the global Muslim community torn by the rise of violent extremism- personified by the film's protagonist, Dr Hafiz .

Hafiz, a Palestinian-Australian doctor is faced with the dilemma on whether to save the life of his fugitive brother intent on committing a suicide attack.
