Movie Info

The story of the film 'Television' deals with a basic Islamic thought. According to many Islamic scripts and interpretations, photographic reproduction of any living being is Haram or forbidden. That means, obviously, television would also be 'Haram'. Accordingly, the Mutawalli of a Bangladeshi rural mosque declares Jihad against all kind of images- still or moving. Hence Television is also forbidden. From then on, we start experiencing a somewhat funny fight against a stupid box called television. At one end, we keep discovering people's ever growing crazy interest to watch television and their desperate efforts to fulfill that interest. At the other end, we see the Imam's relentless effort to keep the villagers away from, what he thought, 'sin'. But at the end of the film, 'Television', which he hated so much, comes to the rescue and helps the Imam reach a transcendental state where he and his God are unified. (c) Cinando
