Muslim Stories


Swiss Muslims are stigmatized in many ways, and many young people from Muslim backgrounds struggle with finding role models. Right there, the influence of radical Islamists can find room to grow. That’s where we came in. In cooperation with a program of University Zurich, we portrayed a series of Swiss Muslims, that lead a life you wouldn’t estimate by clichés or prejudice: from graffiti artist to officer in the army, to intercultural translators. Young people with joy and a life ahead of them. Filmed by a young Iranian photographer living in Switzerland.
