Sex, Revolution and Islam: Seyran Ates
Seyran Ateş is a German lawyer and Muslim feminist. She founded the Ibn Ruschd-Goethe Mosque in 2017, as Germany’s first liberal place of worship for Muslims under a whole lot of attention from the Media and the Islamic world.
This is the story of Seyran Ateş personal and ideological fight for a modernisation of Islam. The only way to fight against the radical Islam is through Islam, says Seyran.
Seyran’s motivation is not only political, but also personal. Her nephew was deeply radicalized and brainwashed at school, through glorifying stories of martyrdom in Syria. Seyran helped him out of it and he is now her closest supporter.
This is film about peace, love and revolution – and religion – in the 21st century.
