"I think what Ashraf is doing is very inspiring, because any important change in the world is difficult to achieve and it often takes one person standing up and trying to do something that seems impossible."
What do you hope audiences will take away from the film?
I hope it will let them step into another person's shoes for a moment, and open themselves up to an honest and sometimes painful conversation, and by doing that we can move in a direction of understanding that will help us live in a more peaceful world. And it's not easy, and it's not something that happens overnight. What Ashraf is focused on is not trying to convert hard-core terrorists but to try and open a conversation within that community that will make terrorism less-attractive, and create a less fertile ground for it. And I think that all of us have to participate in that discussion. That requires all of us opening our perspectives and opening our minds to thinking about things in a different way. And from that great things can happen.
