Every great movie contains a compelling story. Who can forget Will Smith’s struggle through adversity in ‘Pursuit of Happyness’? Or the thrill of the chase between Leonardo Di Caprio and Tom Hanks in ‘Catch Me If You Can’? Or the never give up attitude of ‘Rocky’? But how universal are these plots? And what practical lessons can we take away from the stories and implement into our own lives?
This October, likeMEDIA.tv are organising a tour with a unique premise. We’ve invited Shaykh Jamal ud-Deen Hysaw to deliver a series of lectures bringing an Islamic twist to some of the biggest movies of the recent past. Taking the basic principles behind some popular Hollywood titles, Shaykh Jamal will discuss how we can take the idea behind the movie beyond merely entertainment and look to apply some positive changes to our life. With some stellar movies cast for the programs, the tour promises to leave you on the edge of your seat and hoping for a sequel.
The biggest blockbuster of the winter, coming to a university near you – The Highlight Reel.
