Distant Dreams of Cinema
A documentary film about Mohammed Rasheed Ali – Sufist, Monster maker, Artist, Father.
This film is about passion and faith. It is a beautiful and tragic story about a man who is caught between the three passions in his life – His family, God and Cinema.
Mohammed Rasheed Ali is a strange dichotomy; he is a lover of cinema making a career as a special effects make-up artist and actor, but he is also a practicing Sufist with a strong belief in his religion which forbids any creative act. This has set him at odds with his devout family and created deep rifts within his community.
