Anna Kari

A MUSLIM VILLAGE IN EUROPE (Bulgaria, 2006)

When Europeans talk about Muslims, they always think of immigrants. But Eastern Europe, from Poland to Bosnia, has for centuries had Muslim communities. Anna Kari portrays an Islamic village in Bulgaria's Rhodope Mountains. The residents, who became Muslim under the Turks, were forcibly converted to Christianity in 1922. In the 1980s the Communist regime banned all religious activities. Now that all restrictions have been lifted, the village once again observes its Islamic faith as it once did.
