Majidi's film, ‘Muhammad,' aims to introduce Islam through art

"Muhammad" will first be shown in theaters around the world. "Prior to its world tour, the film will be screened as part of the Cannes Film Festival," said the director. 
Majid Majidi, the acclaimed director of the new Iranian film "Muhammad," said Islam and Prophet Muhammad should be introduced through art. Speaking to an Anadolu Agency correspondent, Majidi said it is still early to criticize the film, which has created controversy in some Arab countries due to whether an image representing the prophet's face should be shown. The film has not yet debuted in theaters, but has been screened for Sunni and Shiite scholars. [link]
