Short film from New Zealand

I heard about it for the first time at a function hosted by the New Zealand High Commission in Kuala Lumpur.His Excellency David Pine was kind enough to let me have a copy of Coffee and Allah for IWFF screening when I asked if he had any film for IWFF. I thought the title was a bit 'funny' but His Excellency said it's a beautiful and sincere short film.

When it arrived at my office today, I did not waste much time to view it.

Dumbfounded.Mesmerised! It's beautiful because everyone in it is beautiful.No scene of violence, abuses, nothing.You'd feel a strong sense of Ethiopian Muslim culture and Kiwi friendliness and acceptance of the 'other'.It's a break from what you see daily in your news.
