Director and Documentary Filmmakers:
Mr. Nemati said that documentary filmmakers must be propagators of the school of thought of the Ahl al-Bayt and said, “We can speak to the world though the school of thought of Ashura.”

RNA – Speaking at a specialized conference entitled “Husayn in Christian Thought, The Symbol of Unity” which was held at Tehran’s Imam Sadiq University, Mr. Mohammad Nemati, the director of the documentary “Husayn: The Symbol of Unity” said, “The guidance of Ayatollah [Mohammad-Ali] Javedan in the making of this documentary was very helpful.”

He also added, “The research that Mr. Taqavi has done on the Bible at the Besharat Institute has helped us make this documentary.”

Mr. Nemati said, “We travelled to various countries to make this documentary and we talked with Christians and clergy until we reached Georgia and met with Archbishop Dr. Malkhaz Songulashvili [the head of the Evangelical Baptist Union of Georgia] who had the experience of participating in the Arba’in pilgrimage.”

The director and documentary filmmakers continued, “It took about two years for Dr. Songulashvili to coordinate his plans and participate in the Arba’in pilgrimage.”

Addressing the documentary filmmakers, he said, “In order to speak in the international arena and to accept our statements and accept that we have nothing but Imam al-Husayn in all areas, including jihad, martyrdom, sacrifice, etc., if we want to speak, we must refer to Imam al-Husayn.”

Mr. Nemati added, “The productions of documentary filmmakers will definitely be seen if they enter into this field and make the right choice. Boycotting is not a reason to back down but documentary filmmakers must be propagators of the school of thought of the Ahl al-Bayt.”
