Koran By Heart - Film and Discussion at the Germantown and Takoma Park Campuses - April 11th

The Montgomery College Libraries and Office of Student Life as part of the Arab American Heritage Month invite students, faculty, staff and the community for Koran By Heart.  An official selection from the Tribeca Film Festival, the film tells the story of the intense competition at the world's oldest Koran memorization contest, when the best and brightest kids from 70 countries across the Islamic world gather each year during Ramadan in Cairo, Egypt, to see who can recite the Koran with the greatest accuracy, passion and beauty. Just 10 years old, the main characters are remarkable, talented boys and girls from remote and volatile parts of the Islamic world—their future hanging in the balance amidst the controversies and divisions that engulf as their religion.KORAN BY HEART is a coming of age story about Muslim kids in modern times.
