Join us for a special event.
Celebrating UPF’s Oscar-Qualified Film: Lamya’s Poem. Sharing the Impact of the Great Muslim American Road Trip and our Hollywood work.
Introducing a new film series in the production and fundraising phase, called “Islam’s Greatest Love Stories” that looks at the story of the Prophet S and Sayyida Khadija, the story of Malcolm X and his sister Ella Collins, and so many others.
About Lamya’s Poem
UPF’s first animated film tells the remarkable story of a young Syrian refugee girl in the present who meets Rumi, the famous Muslim poet, 800 years in the past when he was a refugee after the Mongol invasion.
While on their own respective journeys, they meet in a shared dream world, helping each other cope with the violence around them.
They find temporary relief but have to fight outside forces as well as the demons within as they each search for a place of hope and a new home.
Rumi’s Hajj experience becomes the turning point of his story and Lamya
helps him write the poems that will save her life.
PARENTS NOTE: Due to some scenes of war, the film is not recommended for children under 10. We leave it up to each parent.
